⚠️ 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.

body text

Typefaces that might function reasonably well for setting paragraphs of running body text. Some may require more careful handling to maintain readability, or may only be relevant within a limited subset of their full stylistic range, but are still listed for reference/consideration.
