playfair – Playfair Display fonts with LaTeX support

Play­fair Dis­play is well suited for ti­tling and head­lines. It has an ex­tra large x-height and short de­scen­ders. It can be set with no lead­ing if space is tight, for in­stance in news head­lines, or for stylis­tic ef­fect in ti­tles. Cap­i­tals are ex­tra short, and only very slightly heav­ier than the low­er­case char­ac­ters. This helps achieve a more even ty­po­graph­i­cal colour when type­set­ting proper nouns and ini­tialisms.
