Pensum Pro by Nils Thomsen – your text beast
Pensum Pro is a modern serif font family designed for one purpose and one purpose only. No matter how fancy the headlines, how shiny the ads, how quirky the scripts, the text always matters the most. The longer the text, the greater the amount of the information you get. And when it comes to longer texts, the Pensum Pro font family is a real beast. This elegant broad-nib and brush inspired typeface offers unique ink-trapped effect as well as low contrast, large x-heights and strong serifs that ultimately account for great legibility. All these make Pensum Pro font family very plain, straight and reliable, a real work horse that ensures the even flow of longer texts. With it, prolonged reading will always be a pleasure – something that makes it perfect for books, magazines and newspapers.
Pensum Pro family offers 18 fonts in nine weights – Thin, Extra Light, Light, Regular, Book, Medium, Bold, Extra Bold and Black. All these come with their respective Italics that are as fancy and curvy as one could imagine. The different weights give wide range of choices to the users – the lighter ones are very elegant and fashionable, the middle ones are the real text beasts we are talking about, and the heavier ones have “masculinity” written all over them. To answer to any kind of need, Pensum Pro includes 1050 glyphs per font and lots of OpenType features like the romantic Ligatures, the slightly wider Small Caps, the great Fractions, Numerators, Denominators, Superiors, Inferiors, Tabular and Lining figures, etc.
Pensum Pro complements the line of great fonts supplied by Nils Thomsen and his TypeMates type foundry. His fancy handwritten Jabana font was included in the Fontmatters’ selection of the 15 great font debuts on MyFonts – 2014, 1st half and his other fonts are equally as good, as you can see here:
