Rongel is an interpretation of the types of Rongel shown in Muestras de los punzones y matrices de letra que se funde en el obrador de la Imprenta Real, Madrid, 1799. It was first released as single weight with italics followed by two new weights, bold and semibold. Conceived as a text face (not all text has to be really small!), it contains three weights in Roman and Italic. Rongel was selected as one of Our favorite fonts of 2004, by Typographica.com.
Rongel is part of FTF’s Iberian historical series, along with Eudald, Merlo, and Geronimo, (available through Enschedé.)
