Retor (Polish for rhetor, orator) is a contemporary serif typeface family consisting of 6 styles (Thin, Light, Regular, Bold, Medium, Heavy). Italics are coming soon.
Retor is a typeface that you want to listen to, remaining always on point and convincing. Slightly narrow glyphs with oval details designed as an interpretation of an elegant newspaper headline. A rather high x-height, combined with oval details and small serfs create a vintage look. While the weight of the stroke changes, the inner white space is remaining big.
The typeface is built with several alternative characters and ligatures.
Contextual alternates are turned on in the tester.
