Galea is a slightly condensed serif typeface with long extenders. Its elongated proportions and graceful terminals seek to bring femininity and elegance to any layout. It is a display face that works well at large sizes in editorial contexts as a headline, titling or introduction to a text.
Galea was awarded an honorable mention by the Fine Press Book Association (FBPA) on April 2013. Also, the typeface is featured in the book "Playing with Type: 50 Experiments" by Rockport Press.
Galea was designed while at Cooper Type, a program in the Cooper Union, NYC. in Jesse Ragan's class of Typeface design.
You can now license Galea at Letratype:
