Custer RE

The tenth family in the Reading Edge series, by David Berlow: broad, approachable, exceptionally clear.

David Berlow’s Custer RE is the tenth addition to our Reading Edge (RE) series, available at Webtype. Learn more about it on the Webtype Blog.

Custer RE is a broad and approachable typeface drawn large on the body with a tall x-height, to maximize its apparent size when set very small. The minimal stroke contrast and the hefty serifs let it stay exceptionally clear down to a font-size of 9px.

Reading Edge typefaces are designed specifically for use at small sizes on screen, excelling at 9px to 14px. For more information and to see samples of these fonts, visit Fontbureau.com/ReadingEdge.
