Ligatures are typographic finesses for connoisseurs and occur where two or more graphemes are joined to a single glyph. They help preventing the gap between characters, which disturb the reading flow. For a long time ligatures have been reserved to old style fonts, but recently they are experiencing a revival also through sans serif typefaces. The font family Sintesi Sans is equipped with a large amount of ligatures, much more complete than the usual combinations between the minuscules “f” “I”, and “l”.
Sintesi Sans scores because of its readability, robustness and contemporary style. Its is a true Sans Serif and therefore really flexible, universally applicable especially as a body text font and in a broad number of other applications.
