A straightforward typeface for newspapers and so much more. At home in tight columns and dense leading, it is another monster for text!?
Catchy Record Sound

Meret is a straightforward typeface for newspapers and so much more. At home in tight columns and dense leading, it is another monster for text. Long after other typefaces have gone home, Meret will roll up its sleeves and set word after word, line after line and column after column.

Where Pensum Pro mixes the broad nib with the brush, Meret’s refined shapes balance the broad nib with the pointed pen. The result: a typeface that is at once sturdy and refined. Its wide range of eight weights include four text focussed weights (Light, Regular, Book, Medium) and give enough variety for complex editorial typography. Vivid display styles and unpretentious Italics give the typeface flexibility for serious, frank and modern typography.

For Meret, a typeface fine-tuned to contemporary typographic requirements, one set of figures is not enough! Meret’s almost serif-less figures come in five styles, each with matching tabulars. For tiny text sizes, the default figures are drawn slightly taller than the x-height; making them strong enough for tricky conditions and unobtrusive enough that they do not distract. And, of course, there are also lining figures and — for romantics — classic oldstyle figures. As it’s a TypeMates font, there are also small cap figures and superiors.

With more than a thousand glyphs and lots of OpenType features, Meret can fulfil every typographic need. For lovers of book typography, the small caps are wider than the caps and you will find punctuation in case and small-cap sensitive variations. Meret’s broad language encoding is a TypeMates standard and gives a wide range of flexibility for Latin language support.
