    Centrefold uses Monotype Modern Extended for their logo and throughout this issue of the print magazine. The turn-of-the-century typeface sets a striking, classical tone for the publication and brand. Monotype Grotesque is a fitting companion from the same era. The website designers could have simply gone with the webfont version of the typeface (available at MyFonts and Fonts.com), but they chose Playfair Display instead. Playfair is a fine alternative with a similarly high stroke contrast, and its large lowercase helps it work for the midsized copy on the web, but its readability is really stretched at small sizes. I would consider bumping up the text or using a family like Benton Modern RE that is specifically for screen text.
