    In the annual “The Lives They Lived” issue, The New York Times Magazine remembers those we lost in the past year. This year’s edition features the eye-catching Sestra for headlines, combined with Georgia (text) as well as the magazine’s proprietary Sans (captions, by-lines) and Serif (for the summaries in italics).

    Designed by Austrian-based Kristina Bartošová, Sestra was initially drawn for a logo of a concept store and subsequently developed into a custom typeface. The design appears to be inspired by Ehmcke-Antiqua AKA Carlton. The online feature uses two weights of Sestra. While the title graphic is embedded as SVG, the headlines are rendered with webfonts, making heavy use of the fonts’ special features — extra-wide alternate capitals and nested ligatures, among other things — activated via the OpenType features Discretionary Ligatures and Stylistic Sets.

      Sestra is beautiful! Would also look right at home on New York.
