Canela Collection began as an interpretation of Caslon, but gradually was taken in a new and unexpected direction, shedding its serifs and leaving only vestigial flaring at the ends of strokes, taking on a monumental quality influenced by the author’s experience with stone carving. Canela is a graceful display typeface that defies many of the traditional classifications. Its forms are in an ambiguous space between sans and serif, both soft and sharp, modern yet with roots in the classical. The difference in width between Canela Condensed and Canela is not subtle: designer Miguel Reyes has established clear differentiation between the families, inspired in part by American book covers of the 1960s and 70s. Canela Condensed maintains its quiet elegance, exaggerating the vertical lines of the original width without losing the supple curves of the round forms.
