    November brought us a month of diverse typefaces, from modern to classic, san-serif to serif, lightweight to heavy. Here’s our picks from the past month.

    Mika Melvas: Ahkio


    Ahkio’s roots are in 1930s sign painting and showcard lettering but with a modern and individual twist.

    Font Bureau: Tilda


    Tilda is a script typeface with size-specific styles by Jessica Hische.

    Harbor Type: Graviola


    With semi-rounded terminals, Graviola is soft and friendly.

    Positype: Rough Love

    Severe, austere and yet, full of life, Retiro is a vernacular version of Castilian and Andalusian in a typical Didot.

    Kyle Wayne Benson: Jeames


    Jeames brings familiarity to the often detached feeling extended serif genre. The curved, heavy, joints let the letters bounce along while the proportions and contrast keep your eyes grounded.
