A happy, delicate family, declined in 5 weights. Being very legible in small sizes, it pays tribute to French designer Roger Excoffon, particularly to his Antique Olive type. Antique Olive combines two features which inspired the design of Quimera: a large x-height with open counters which ensures legibility at tiny body sizes; and a reverse contrast as it contradicts the calligraphic tradition (thick verticals, thin horizontals). Quimera has a typical sanserif modulation but its very thin serifs help keeping readers' eyes on the the textline. This 'genetic' contradiction is the reason for its name (Khimera) as if it would be a 'sanserif avec’.
Quimera supports 71 different languages such as Spanish, English, Portuguese, German and French in Latin scripts. (Please note that not all languages are available for all formats.)
