Background

FF Absara is a forthright serif family that successfully combines two typo-cultural heritages. FontShop (who released Absara last year under their FontFont label) describes the family as: “a typeface of French proportions, but its shapes take their cues from the Dutch style: less polished, more direct.” It’s a compelling and exciting blend. Absara is a thoroughly contemporary family that has enough integrity to set blocks of text, but enough character and quirk to catch the eye and enliven a layout.
