About this font family
Range Serif is a sharp, contemporary, wedge serif typeface with just a hint of fraktur influence. There are five weights from light to black, each with corresponding italics.
This is a typeface designed for demanding typographic work; it’s legible at small sizes, but unique at display sizes. There is an abundance of OpenType features in each font, including:
Ligatures - all fonts contain standard f-ligatures. More…
Contextual Alternates - Range Serif has been carefully designed to not ‘need’ ligatures. If you choose to deactivate them, the contextual alternates feature will make sure an alternative f is used before certain letters to avoid clashing.
Fractions - When activated, numbers separated by a slash will automagically turn into fractions.
Numerals - There are many different figure sets. These are Proportional Lining, Tabular Lining, Proportional Oldstyle, Tabular Oldstyle, Superiors and Scientific Inferiors. A slashed zero feature is also included.
Small Caps - All styles include small caps, for both small caps and capitals to small caps functions.
Ornaments - For convenience, the arrows are grouped in the ornaments feature.
Case Sensitive Forms - There are different punctuation and bracket glyphs for all caps usage.
Stylistic Alternates / SS01 - The italic fonts contain alternates for the letters A, K, R, U and X.
More details about the OpenType features can be found in the user guide pdf in the gallery section.
Range Serif is a versatile and fully-featured typeface, ideal for corporate identities, contemporary art catalogs, even t-shirt slogans. The language coverage is impressive (Latin Extended A is fully covered) so Range Serif should prove a useful text and display workhorse for speakers of many different tongues. The typeface includes an array of currency symbols, including the new symbols for Indian Rupee and Turkish Lira.
