The COMPRESSA typeface family combines a huge spread of weights and widths that is otherwise very difficult to find. So you can choose from a total of 80 single cuts which style suits you best.
The entire clan is divided into five widths, each consisting of 16 individual sections with standardized weights (8 upright and 8 italics), whereby the width of the stems is identical for the weights. Only the width of the styles differs.... A very well thought-out, modern font system.
Readability is not just a matter of “beautiful” and “good” typeface. Making a printed matter readable is primarily a typographer's task, it is a matter of typographic organization, the arrangement of texts and images...

But I must explain to you how all this mistaken idea of denouncing pleasure and praising pain was born and I will give you a complete account of the system, and expound the actual teachings of the great explorer of the truth, the master builder of human happiness. No one rejects, dislikes, or avoids pleasure itself, because it is pleasure, but because those who do not know how to pursue pleasure rationally encounter consequences that are extremely painful. Nor again is there anyone who loves or pursues or desires to obtain pain of itself, because it is pain, but because occasionally circumstances occur in which toil and pain can procure him some great pleasure.
