Zitat is a matter-of-fact and powerful contemporary roman, which was originally designed for newspapers. Narrow letters and a relatively high x-height produce the kind of compact type that’s well-suited to narrow text columns. Nowhere has more been done than necessary to achieve clarity. And yet, when one considers the basic typeface, it sounds a friendly note that is spirited and sensitive, open and dependable, powerful and persuasive.
Zitat fonts are available in OpenType Basic (no features) and OpenType Expert (features included). OpenType features provide advanced typographic performance and can be accessed by almost all professional layout software.
Zitat Expert fonts come with proportional lining figures with varying widths and kerning. Oldstyle and tabular figures are available via features. The space glyph measures exactly half of the width of tabular figures, therefore it can easily be used for spaces in tabular composition.
