Talia is a large typeface family designed for setting longer texts. Robert Jarzec lists: “technical and academic publications, textbooks, and encyclopedias.” The family includes a wide assortment of characters that include not only European languages in the Latin alphabet, but also diacritics for Vietnamese and Cyrilic. Apart from the text fonts, display styles for headlines have been designed. The most interesting attribute of this family is the two italic styles. This might seem excessive, but they can be used in practice, particularly in more complex book designs. The family has twelve weight styles. The jury admired the complex approach to the subject and the high quality of the design.
