⚠️ Notice: As a showcase of variable fonts, this site requires a web browser that supports OpenType font variation technology. It looks like your browser doesn’t, so please consider upgrading to one that does (the latest versions of Chrome work well, even on older operating systems). Otherwise, the font samples below will only appear as static fonts.

multiplexed posture

Typefaces that maintain a consistent set width across variations in posture (i.e. italics, slants, obliques), allowing for adjustments without causing text to reflow.

See also “multiplexed weight” or the general “multiplexed” tag that covers multiplexing across any axis.
