Background

Contra I always wanted to be a contemperary serif. It is quite sharp and expressive. Still in small sizes the expressive parts seem to soften an keep a good legibility. There is a Regular, an Italic and a smallcaps version, because in the sans there are plenty of weights to help in the hierarchy of text.
