Silk Serif

Silk Serif is a serif typeface designed by Rakel Tómasdóttir and published through Icelandic foundry SilkType in 2017. The design is unique in that the bowls of letters such as b, d and a don’t connect directly to the stem, leaving a tiny, almost imperceptible gap that is only noticeable at large sizes. The family is available in seven weights with matching italics, as well as a condensed width.
