Recita is a contemporary take on several sorts of classic typefaces, with a special focus on oldstyle fonts. With diagonal stress, chunky asymmetrical slab serifs and sturdier low contrast shapes, Recita was designed for elegant digital books and web typography. Available with and without serifs, Recita and Recita Sans were conceived for digital applications, but can easily be used on print, due to the rich texture it provide for text setting. Both serif and sans italics follow the calligraphic humanist tradition. All styles are available with matching Small Capitals and a Stylistic Set for all the basic letters that includes a set of symbols and icons for navigation, borders and textures.
