Röma synthesises and reinterprets the original Elzevir model, whose attraction is its elegant posture and its high-readability qualities. While its style has been historically and pragmatically exploited, Röma's generous rhythm and sophisticated details stand for higher quality print, shared across the four weights and matching italics. Ho to craft across the weights the muscularity of this living yet sober book typeface? The resulting sharp reading texture promotes the ergonomics of reading while adding value to the content.
