playfair – Playfair Display fonts with support

This package provides the PlayFairDisplay family of fonts, designed by Claus Eggers Sørensen, for use with , pdf, XeLaTeX and Lua.

PlayFairDisplay 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.
