A Note on the Type

The text of this website is composed in the Alegreya super family. Designed by Argentinian type designer Juan Pablo del Peral, Alegreya sans and serif sister families. Its serif family was picked as one of the “Fonts of the Decade” at the Letter.2 competition; a rare feat by a freely available font. The majority of the text on this website is typeset in the serif form of Alegreya, as it was designed specifically for a comfortable reading experience. The footer, asides, and image captions were set in the small caps variant of the sans-serif Alegreya.
