ABOUT THIS TYPEFACE

This humanist sans-serif typeface was exhaustively designed, full-featured typeface family that reveals its character and distinctiveness in complex settings. It features a large complement of ligatures, lining and old-style figures, expert characters, dingbats (arrows, brackets, and symbols for both Regular weights). Lisboa the forms of the letters are humanist, with “hooked head” terminals, the characters contains medium contrast with a left-angled stress on the strokes. The other font family version Lisboa Sans lacks the hook-head terminals, but its structure and proportions are the same. The ample x-height and the openness of the letterforms make this face very legible at small sizes. The type family has real italics, not sloped romans. They slightly less open and narrower than the roman, which provides a good balance between the two styles. After ten years from the first version publication, this new version (0.2) is available with Latin (Western, Central Europe) Cyrillic and Greek alphabets. It was selected as one of “Our Favorite Fonts” from (Typographica) 2005.
