Background

Where classic serif faces are urbane and well-mannered, Turnip is coarse and down-to-earth — the kind of type that feels completely at home with salty language. David Jonathan Ross crafted an energetic tension between Turnip’s inner and outer shapes to give it vigor, while strong strokes and sturdy serifs yield dense paragraphs with a horizontal emphasis. This ain’t your grandpa’s book face, but it reads just as well.
