The classic roman spirit and bracketed, cupped serifs together with the narrow width and elevated x-height of Summa give it a lofty, elegant appearance and an economic use of space. The ‘true italic’ counterpart style — not simply slanted or oblique — with its more calligraphic form is a well-balanced and thoughtful adaptation of the regular design.
Summa Inline is a fascinating stylistic variation that re-imagines the structure of the forms found in the regular. The inline seems to twist in places, dropping out where strokes cross over each other and creating an almost three dimensional, ribbon-like appearance at times. In addition, the inline variant of Summa includes a set of swash capital letters for that extra little dash of calligraphic flare and exuberance.
The Summa Family package contains Summa Regular, Italic, and Inline (3 fonts total).
Summa’s height and compact measure make it an ideal choice for use in headlines, book titles, on posters, for drop-caps, and other instances where large display sizes are needed in tight spaces but heavy weights are not desired.
