Soho Body Text

Hey everyone!

Has anyone noticed that it is difficult to set body text in Soho Regular?

For me Regular it seems a bit to dark, whereas Light does the job much better. Also, probably due to the large x-height the Auto leading value of 120% is way too tight. Although, I think the large x-height is also responsible for high legibility and readability in small sizes, which is a good thing.

My own experimentation led me to a decision of using Soho Light 7.5/11.5 pt or 8/12 pt for body text.

Does anyone have any experience working with this typeface? Any comments/tips?

Uppercase, serif, sloping brackets, medium variation on stroke. Plus italics... or slanted letterforms, I would not know.

It is part of the book jacket from a Spanish novel. Is the typeface that states the author's name condensed or that's just the way the typeface was designed? And what's with the non-closing P letterform?

Thank you all in advance!

New Release: Rue Display.

Forums: 

TypeTogether is proud to introduce Rue Display, an organic, casually ornamental, narrow-faced sans serif designed by Winnie Tan.

Rue's spirited and exploratory design is the materialization of a feeling about fonts as a family of organisms taking on a life of its own, in work and play. It was conceived as a typeface, used as an image and discovered as an ornament.

It comes in 10 weights of light, regular, medium, semibold and bold, each with italics.
