Background

Esta Pro is a mystifyingly elegant yet practical serif typeface. The stoic and well-proportioned uppercase fail to distract from the deeper nuances found in the thoroughly humanistic and pleasantly jubilant lowercase.

A tempered calligraphic hand is consistently evident in the Romans, but the demure curves really begin to make their moves in the Italics, begin to dance in the Display style, and really let loose in the Swash style.

Add a vast palette of ligatures and alternates to the choreaography and you have the makings of a visual ballet of perfect rhythm and graceful gestures.
