Publica is a flexible grotesk type family with a wide array of weights and widths, and a contrast axis to introduce modulation in stroke weight. The typeface’s italic styles are produced with an additional slant axis and optional OpenType features to activate cursive forms. Publica started in 2007 as a fork of the open-source font family Liberation Sans and developed a life of its own over the years.
