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 Sans lacks the hook-head terminals and the letterforms are more simple, but its structure and proportions are the same. The simplicity of the sans weight created very strong readability at small sizes. The ample x-height and the openness of the letterforms make this typeface very legible at small sizes. This font 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, Greek, Hebrew and Tamil alphabets. It was selected as one of “Our Favorite Fonts” from (Typographica) 2005.
