Publisher: Emtype Foundry
Relato was designed by Eduardo Manso and published by Emtype Foundry. Relato contains 5 styles and family package options.  

Relato has a low contrast and "a muscular" structure that makes it useful for setting longer text. In display sizes it has a variety of details that lends it a unique and personal expression. The formal principle of the serif, the variety of terminal strokes and the combination of curves and semi-straight lines gives the Relato a more "human" flavor.

The inspiration for the design comes from different traditional calligraphic styles. The upper case letter, for example, is based on roman capitals from the Rennaissance, whereas the lower case relates to humanist handwriting. Even so, Relato is a decidedly contemporary typeface, proposing individual ideas on the design of type.

The italic has a distinct typographic color thanks to the construction principle of broken lines. The bold weights have an increased contrast in the union of the strokes which helps improve legibility in small sizes and reinforce their personality in display sizes.

The family consists of a Regular version, Italic, Small caps, Semibold and Bold.

For a sans serif version of Relato, please see Relato Sans.
