As the size range of the various Paperback masters rises, the stem widths of the typeface, along with the overall typographic color, become increasingly more delicate. The individual letterforms feature complex facets that help maintain excellent legibility at small sizes. As the size range increases, these facets are refined, but they are not completely eliminated. These small details give Paperback a unique texture that has been carefully balanced across all of the masters, making the collection a superb choice for almost any setting.
In addition to a wealth of typefaces, Paperback also includes twenty-five decorative embellishments in font format. These ornaments are provided in font format and are spaced horizontally and vertically so creating patterns, borders, rules and flourishes is as easy as typing a few letters.
Paperback Text features several figure styles. Included are old-style figures for use in running text, lining figures for use with uppercase forms and small caps figures. Lining figures are also supplied in tabular format for use in columnar settings. Plus, superscript and subscript figures are included for use in fractions, footnotes, etc. OpenType-savvy applications will build fractions on the fly. A full range of "nut" fractions are also supplied.
The Paperback collection contains encodings that support well over two dozen languages. Paperback's OpenType fonts feature support for numerous Central European characters and more. Below is a complete list of sustainable tongues.
