Spezia Serif

Spezia Serif is the typeface that fits. Built to give the designer flexibility for every thinkable use. From a small five point text on a footnote up to large elegant magazine titles. This typeface can do it all, thanks to its 144 font-weights. 

Spezia Serif is build on diligent study of the emblematic transitional typefaces from the turn of the 19th century. Yet, the font has a contemporary appearance and feels modern due its focus on the reduction to the essential in each shape.

The headline version (A) is sleek with a lot of contrast and fine details. In opposition stands the version (D) for small texts, which opens up forms and turns shapes in to a more monolinear design.

Together with her sanserif sibling (Spezia) is the typeface a unique and extensive typographic system. Spezia Serif is available as standard version and as Variable Font.

Variable Fonts are used with axes rather than fixed font weights. The font is built on three axes, Weight (Book → Black), Width (Condensed → Normal) and Opticial Size (A for 34 point → D for 4 point).

Los Pirineos son más antiguos que los Alpes: sus sedimentos se depositaron por primera vez en las cuencas costeras durante las eras Paleozoica y Mesozoica. Hace entre 100 y 150 millones de años, durante el período Cretácico Inferior, el golfo de Vizcaya se desplegó, empujando a la España actual contra Francia y aplicando una intensa presión de compresión a grandes capas de roca sedimentaria. La intensa presión y la elevación de la corteza terrestre afectaron primero a la parte oriental y se movieron progresivamente a toda la cadena, culminando en la Época del Eoceno. La parte oriental de los Pirineos se compone principalmente de rocas de granito y gneiss, mientras que en la parte occidental los picos de granito están flanqueados por capas de piedra caliza. El carácter masivo y sin uso de la cordillera proviene de su abundancia de granito, que es resistente a la erosión.
The International Typographic Style has had a profound influence on graphic design as a part of the modernist movement, affecting many design-related fields; including architecture and art. It emphasises cleanness, readability, and objectivity. Hallmarks of the style are asymmetric layouts, use of a grid, sans-serif typefaces and flush left, ragged right text. The style is also associated with a preference for photography in place of illustrations or drawings. Many of the early International Typographic Style works featured typography as a primary design element besides its use in text, and it is for this that the style is named. The style emerged from a desire to represent information objectively, free from the influence of associated meaning. The International Typographic Style evolved as a modernist graphic movement that sought to convey messages clearly and in a universal manner. 
Wie auf dem festen Land, so gibt es auch im Meer, Erhöhungen und Schluchten. Viele Berge unter dem Meer sind höher, manche Gebirgszüge sind länger, viele Schluchten tiefer als irgendwo auf dem Festen. Wenn man den höchsten Berg mit seinen 8847 Metern Höhe, in die tiefste Tiefe versenken wollte, so würden immer noch gut 2186 Meter Wassertiefe über seinem Gipfel liegen. Während aber alle Erhebungen auf dem festen Land dem ständigen, zermürbenden Angriff von Erosion ausgesetzt sind, stehen die Gebirge unterm Meer unversehrt im stillen Wasser der Abgründe. Lediglich ihre obersten Spitzen, die durch das Wasser durchstoßen und uns als Inseln erscheinen, werden vom Wind, von der Brandung und vom Regen angegriffen. Der Meeresboden ist in drei Abschnitte unterteilt : den Kontinental-Schelf, den Kontinental-Abfall und den Tiefseeboden.
