font family


Designed by Alejandro Lo Celso
The type family Borges pays tribute to Argentinean poet Jorge Luis Borges and his celebrated, fantastic literature. He had a sort of a goldsmith's technique, restlessly polishing his words towards perfection. This suggested us a clean, dignified letterform, economical in its appearance though still elegant and relaxed. The typeface Borges is a classic and very dynamic letterform. It gives the text a calmed and smooth appearance, which makes it very comfortable for long, immersed reading. The titling open variant of Borges is a graceful choice suitable for special cases. And the Poema face is a fine contemporary chancery for lyric designs. Borges was prized at the latest Morisawa Awards in Japan.

Fractions

Tag: frac

Function: Replaces figures separated by a slash with 'common' (diagonal) fractions. The user enters 3/4 in a recipe and gets the threequarters fraction.

Standard Ligatures

Tag: liga

Function: Replaces a sequence of glyphs with a single glyph which is preferred for typographic purposes. This feature covers the ligatures which the designer/manufacturer judges should be used in normal conditions. The glyph for ffl replaces the sequence of glyphs f f l.

Ordinals

Tag: ordn

Function: Replaces default alphabetic glyphs with the corresponding ordinal forms for use after figures. One exception to the follows-a-figure rule is the numero character (U+2116), which is actually a ligature substitution, but is best accessed through this feature. The user applies this feature to turn 2.o into 2.o (abbreviation for secundo).

Superscript

Tag: sups

Function: Replaces lining or oldstyle figures with superior figures (primarily for footnote indication), and replaces lowercase letters with superior letters (primarily for abbreviated French titles). The application can use this feature to automatically access the superior figures (more legible than scaled figures) for footnotes, or the user can apply it to Mssr to get the classic form.
