About this font family
Quiosco (Spanish for Kiosk) is a text family designed by Cyrus Highsmith (after Prensa) that follows W.A. Dwiggins in deliberately contrasting character outline with the counter shape.
Highsmith addresses the narrow news column by bringing new life to the forms of a newspaper text face while adding nothing to character width. Quiosco permits more compact wordspaces with no loss of readability
