Background

Glosa is part of the DSType Premium Typeface Collection, painstakingly crafted for editorial and informational design. Glosa possesses an earnest, antiqued quality in its chiseled, unbracketed serifs and subdued embellishments. Its structure is reminiscent of fine copper type designs and would pair well with any classic engravers workhorse revival. What makes Glosa a truly contemporary design for the 21st century are its ample x-height and conservatively stressed true italics. It maintains readability, never distracting with misplaced flair.

A full array of Opentype features guarantees Glosa’s reliability in today’s design world. Included are Small Caps, Old Style Figures, both Lining and Old Style Tabular Figures, Fractions, Numerators, Denominators, Superscript, Scientific Inferiors, and a modest offering of stylistic alternates and ligatures.
