Type designers, educators, historians, engineers, and users select the year’s best new font releases.
A typeface is a tone of voice, an utterance that lingers on a page. Like speech, it exhibits qualities that differentiate it from others. Those qualities also suggest ways that its features can be parlayed in the service of typographic precision. Typonine does exactly that with Marlene High, its brand new series of display fonts. While Marlene High maintains the brisk and resolute features of Marlene, its elder relative, it amplifies the already striking features of that Modern series. Its wispy hairline serifs, large x-height, true italics, and taut, squarish curves save space; its high contrast, its rectangular hooks and finials make for warm, enthralling headlines that rival the best industrial faces of yore. High also exaggerates an existing feature to great effect: alternating wedge and hairline serifs in its uppercase and small capital letters. Like its low-contrast yet thundering and diaphanous coequal, Marlene Display, High stands on its own as a competent and eminently useful addition to an outstanding anthology.
Marlene High ships with a range of weights and styles as well as a host of OpenType features that include small capitals, fractions, arbitrary fractions, superior and inferior numerals, ligatures, dingbats, international currencies, and indices.
