A classical type, comfortable for reading
Borges is a classic text type that combines dignity and grace from the French Renaissance with a contemporary flavor, not too far from the Dutch style. Borges is a humble tribute to the fantastic oeuvre of Jorge Luis Borges. His writing technique, that of a thorough, tireless goldsmith, endlessly seeking the perfect word, suggested a clean, economical letterform. Borges is a very versatile type and it enjoys good readability due to its round & open forms, which lead to a comfortable rhythm in the textline. It comes in four weights or roman, italics, and smallcaps. The italics are particularly flowing. The family has display companions as well.
