About Scharf Font Family

Scharf is a sturdy serif of eight weights with matching true italics. Accurate serif details are carefully drawn to allow improvements to readability and further enhance the fonts' fluid and dynamic personality. This extensive type system is purposefully suited for editorial design and complex typographic hierarchy. Details include eight weights with matching true italics, over 950 characters per font with alternative lowercase a, e, g and y, eight variations of numerals, true small caps with accents, discretionary ligatures and language support covering Western, South and Central European and Vietnamese.
