Eksja was created by Ben Jones and published by Protimient. Eksja consists of 8 styles and household package options. p > Eksja is a modern-day slab serif available in four weights, each with a matching italic. All the fonts in the household have little caps, the prolonged latin character set, diacritical f-ligatures, enclosed numerals (numbers in circles) and case-sensitive punctuation.

The basic design of the typeface has been with a strong human touch in mind. Completions of the serifs have actually been provided a subtle rounding, simply enough to alleviate which, when combined with the largely humanist structure of the design, creates an open, friendly and approachable design, abandoning the typical geometric intensity commonly associated with slab serif typefaces.

Eksja consists of quite an extensive numerals system. Obviously, each typeface has the standard proportionally and tabularly spaced lining and old-style figures however, crucially, the tabular characters share the precise same width in each font style variation. That suggests that you can choose to use the thin, routine, vibrant, black and their italic forms all in the very same setting and they will always line up.

In addition to the 'typical' characters there are super-script and sub-script numerals and OpenType fractions that can be automatically made up as you type. There are also the enclosed characters, numbers inside a circle, that are useful for numerically listing items and, thanks to the wizardry of OpenType, they can contain any variety of digits (generally, enclosed characters are precomposed single digits, only incorporating the 0-- 9 range, the enclosed numerals in Eksja can go to double digits, triple digits or, in fact, any variety of digits *).

* The automation of the enclosed characters is accessed by means of either 'Stylistic Set # 1' or 'Stylistic Alternates' which needs using an application that supports OpenType stylistic sets or stylistic alternates, such as Adobe's InDesign or Photoshop.
