Planet is a convincing body copy typeface, practical and without affectations. Its small round letters are circular and the curve-endings also follow that of a circle. The characters h, m, n, u, by way of contrast, have a rather narrow inner-surface and thereby permit a tighter line of letters. Even the upper-case letters require little space. The result is a matter-of-fact, business-like, compact text, to which the surprisingly lively and voluptuous descender of the grotesque g lends a special charm. The italics are narrower and spaced tightly. In use they create a nice contrast to the wide upright. Good legibility also allows them to be used alone perfectly.
