Tarsus is a sturdy serif typeface for the Latin script. It has been optimised for text, and will handle any environment you throw it into, even newsprint. Its letters feature sharp, wedge-like serifs and open counter forms. Text set in small sizes remains still quite legible. The design’s numerals are oldstyle figures, and there are five weights in the family, ranging from Light to Bold. Tarsus Light is low-contrast, but as the family’s weights grow bolder, stroke contrast increases. Tarsus was developed in 2014–15 by Khyati Trehan and ITF.
