Recife is the text typeface designed for today’s editorial needs.
It stands in the tradition of antique fonts in the Dutch manner; such as Plantin and Times.
Due to the innovative calligraphy achieves Recife an own crisp identity.
Especially the lowercase a, f and s reflects this approach; with their open counter-spaces.
Recife comes in two styles.
The Text is optimised for excellent legibility and sharpness at smaller sizes.
It’s Display sibling focuses on character and plays more with contrasts.
Recife resumes classic resources into a contemporary aesthetic.

Recife is also available as a Variable Font with two axes, Weight (Light → Black) and Optical Size (Text → Display).
By purchasing a family you receive two Variable Fonts; an upright and an italic.
