specimen with weights examples.

Novecento Slab is the “slab serif” companion of Novecento Sans, a font family inspired on European typographic tendencies between the second half of 19th century and first half of the 20th.
As the excellent French typographer Xavier Dupré said “it seems to have been cast in concrete”. Despite its blocky look, Novecento Slab’s lettershapes are optically corrected and balanced.
This font face is designed to be used mostly for headlines, visual identities or short sentences, both in big and small sizes.
Novecento Slab family was spaced and kerned with love and patience; each font has between 750 and 950 group kerning pairs. It can be mixed with Novecento Sans as well as on its own.
This font is available for licensing in opentype and webfont format, as well as for mobile apps, ebooks and for software embedding.
