Updated description: this is a contemporary serif family I'm working on since January 2010. It was initially just for personal use, but the project grow up to embrace complete Latin, Cyrillic and Greek scripts, besides phonetic alphabets, arrows and dingbats.
It's a text font and the family is planned to have several weights in roman and italic versions. I believe it will be released in early 2013.
1. it must be suitable for books and magazines, with more contrast than contemporary typefaces like Meta Serif, Greta Text or Stuart.
2. it must be clean and legible, with high x-height, generous counterspaces and reduced ornamental elements.
3. it must produce a strong horizontal impression, with well defined lines like the ones achieved with Guardian Text, Utopia or Charter, for example.
4. it must be adequate to academic, legal and technical texts with harmony between usual text, numeric data and acronyms.
Many glyphs have alternate designs, as |a|b|f|g|q|y|W|Ж|К|. Target sizes are 9 to 32pt. Small caps are taller than usual. Petite caps are also included. Numbers, currency symbols and related signs are available in 10 variations. Palimpsest is a codename.
Comments are very welcome.
