The Ingeborg family was designed with the intent of producing a readable modern face.
Its roots might well be historic, but its approach is very contemporary. Ingeborg’s text styles are functional and discreet. This was achieved without losing the classic characteristics of a Didone typeface, which are the vertical stress and the high contrast.
The display styles on the other hand are designed to fulfil their job and catch the reader’s eye by individual form language and a whole lot of ink on the paper. Nevertheless both are of one origin and work together in harmony. Ingeborg carries a lot of OpenType features most of them very useful for its readability. A funny feature among the contextual substitutions is Ingeborg’s lowercase g with the turning ear.
