Feijoa, by KLIM

KLIM is a typographic design studio run by Kris Sowersby.
Presented here is Feijoa, a very elegant typeface, with lots of open type features (download PDF).

Feijoa is my first serious book typeface, representing four summer’s worth of bloody hard work. I wanted a feeling of softness in a typeface, to design a type that didn’t have all the sharp points and edges that can make digital type so stale and inhuman. The saying “a straight line is a dead line” was very inspirational, I initially took that rather seriously. However, it became apparent that this need not be taken literally, as many of the baseline curves became irrelevant at smaller sizes.

Available at Village.
Also take a look at his moleskine section, very inspiring.
