“Spanish for press, Prensa is a new series from Cyrus Highsmith. He arrived at this family’s character through his process of ‘wrapping outside curves around the inside, deliberately creating tension between the two,’ a technique epitomized in Electra, a 1935 bookface by 20th-century master W. A. Dwiggins. This tension really appears in the italics, which stray from the traditional forms to balance simplicity with vitality.” [Font Bureau, 2003]
