On this day for type lovers, we are delighted to announce webfonts for the especially lovable Harriet Text and Harriet Display by Jackson Cavanaugh at Okay Type. The elegant serif series draws inspiration from text faces of 19th and 20th century American and English design, but is unburdened by any particular historic model. With rational form and a good portion of grandeur, Harriet manages to combine exuberance with practical versatility.
The series is comprised of a stalwart text family and a sophisticated display family. The text styles with their moderate stroke contrast and stability are suitable for copy sizes down to 12 px. The display styles, on the other hand, play out their refined detailing in headlines and other large applications — from the sparkling Thin to the vigorous Black, with particularily enticing italics.
If you need to cover a large variety of content but don’t want to stick to one type series only, Harriet combines well with almost all sans-serif typefaces, for example Alright Sans or Nobel. For extra-small font sizes try Benton Modern RE. To experience the Harriet Series in all its webfont glory first hand, be sure to also check out Okay Type’s splendid specimen site.
