Museo is a contemporary semi-slab serif font family designed by Jos Buivenga. His love for the uppercase letter U inspired this unique set of fonts: “In a daydream I saw the top of both stems bended into semi-slab serifs. From this principle I worked out the rest of the uppercase letters. My first intention was to make it an all-caps display font but after a few months I changed my mind. I wanted it to be a bit more versatile, so I decided to add lowercase and adjusted spacing and kerning to increase legibility.” The Museo font family supports Western and Central European languages and a variety of OpenType features including case sensitive forms, ligatures, contextual alternatives, stylistic alternates, fractions and proportional/tabular figures. The Museo font family has 10 fonts in total: five weights (100 300 500 700 900) plus new italics. Museo is a trademark of Exljbris Font Foundry and may be registered in certain jurisdictions.
