On first glance it looks like this website is set entirely in Igino Marini’s Fell Types – more precisely his digitization of Peter de Walpergen’s Roman and Italic Pica cuts. The designers could have benefited from the other four optical sizes available in this revival, but they sticked to the coarsest style which is suitable only for smaller text. Instead there is an antiqued version of Emigre’s Filosofia, embedded as pixel images. In a cameo appearance: Thing T. Thing AKA Adobe Caslon’s slightly scary manicule.
