    "Recia is Carlos De Toro’s debut typeface with ITF. Recia is a contemporary-style serif. The family comes in 10 styles, and its five Italic fonts are ‘true-italic’ designs, which feature a cursive-structure in the letters. Its x-height is pretty high and the characters are slightly condensed, with strokes that are rather low-contrast. In the lighter weights, hardly any stroke contrast is visible between the thick and thin portions of the letters, but in the Bold weights, stroke contrast is clear, but the thinner strokes are still quite chunky. The serifs all take wedge-shapes. Each font contains 516 glyphs, and the character set offers users multiple figure styles via OpenType features. The default numeral versions are proportional oldstyle figures. Recia is optimised for use in running text, particularly in less-than-optimal printing environments were sturdy letterforms are needed." – The Indian Type Foundry Read Less

"Recia es la tipografía debut de Carlos de Toro con ITF. Recia es una serif contemporánea formada por 10 estilos con sus cinco fuentes itálicas. Posee una generosa altura de X y unos caracteres ligeramente condensados, con trazos que presentan un bajo contraste en los pesos más ligeros pero que va aumentando y siendo más evidente según crece el peso de la letra. Cada fuente contiene un total de 516 grifos y el conjunto de caracteres ofrece a los usuarios alternativas gracias al OpenType. Recia está optimizada para su uso en texto corrido, particularmente en situaciones no óptimas de impresión donde se necesitan unas contraformas fuertes y juegos con pequeñas trampas de tinta."  – The Indian Type Foundry
