Contrary to Fedra Serif A, version B has an increased contrast and stem lengths, and it is suitable for high-resolution printing and display where its shape can be better appreciated.
More about design concept ▸
All weights of Fedra Serif include nine different kinds of numerals. Default numerals are ranging, or OsF (Old-style proportional Figures) for use in running text. Proportions of text figures are similar to ascenders and descenders of lower case characters. Lining figures for use with capitals letters, because their proportions match the height of caps. Small caps figures to match the height of small capitals. Tabular (both Lining and OsF), Superior and Inferior figures, and finally Circled and Circled inverted are available in our OpenType fonts.

For situations where simple letters are not enough, each weight of Fedra includes a collection of symbols, arrows, pictograms and alternative characters.
Fedra Serif comes in four weights, each accompanied by Italics and Small Capitals. While Italics are separate font files, Small Caps can be activated as OpenType feature. Also Italic fonts include Small Caps.
Typotheque OpenType Pro fonts support all European languages, covering Latin-based (Western, Central and Eastern European, Baltic, Turkish), Cyrillic-based, and Greek-based languages. Such large multilingual fonts are sometimes referred to as Pan-European or WGL4 fonts.
Fedra Serif Pro contains also a set of characters for science and mathematics. Since it seems that there is no clearly defined mathematical character set, we made our own set designed to cover most common mathematical notation, including the entire Greek alphabet.
Fedra Serif was designed in 2003 by Peter Biľak. In 2005 the OpenType Pro version was released with Cyrillic designed by Gayaneh Bagdasaryan.
