TWT Prospero

By Three Islands Press

TWT Prospero is the kind of typeface you seldom find in blocks of continuous text these days. Similar faces based on the late-18th-century work of Bodoni, the Didots, and others have exaggerated contrast and vanishing hairlines that can make you squint and strain at small sizes. But TWT Prospero—with its moderate contrast and fairly robust hairlines—is impressively legible in book text while remaining ideal for use in display situations. The full family has seven styles: roman, italic, bold, bold italic, condensed roman, condensed italic, and condensed bold.
