Nothing pleases us more than laying out body copy with a typeface that works extremely well. Like a good car, we tend to favor ones that have a winning balance of beauty, rugged handling and come packed full of features. High-performing fonts reduce the amount of time needed to make adjustments while working, especially when setting large amounts of copy in brochures, annual reports and books. 

Font Bureau’s Quiosco is one that’s high on our list of text families that demonstrate harmony in both charisma and execution.

From Gutenberg to the Heidelberger press, moveable type sparked the mass production of printed books and was the first time information and ideas could be circulated on a global scale. The printing press was really our first Internet of sorts, and certainly the catalyst for typography and information and graphic design as we know it.
