The FF Celeste Small Text versions are made specifically for use in small point sizes. The designer of the types, Chris Burke, adjusted the thickness of the strokes and the proportions of the letters so that they are easier to read in small sizes than the original FF Celeste family – much like in the days of lead type when it was common to cut different punches of a typeface for use in different sizes.
FF Celeste Small Text was originally designed for the text and footnotes of Burke’s book “Paul Renner: The Art of Typography” (Hyphen Press, London, 1998). The family was extended for release as part of the FontFont library.
FF Celeste Small Text supports 114 different languages such as Spanish, English, Portuguese, German and French in Latin scripts. (Please note that not all languages are available for all formats.)
