Modum from The Northern Block

A contemporary serif font, Modum was created by the team at type foundry The Northern Block. Its website describes it as being a design that 'takes influence from traditional serif forms to develop a precise, highly functional text face with a low contrast. Smooth radius details are blended with carefully drawn angles that give a crisp, distinctive aesthetic when used across body copy.

"Modum is a stylish modern day serif with great charm, harmony and practicality that is best suited for complex hierarchical projects, such as editorials, newspapers and text based books."

Modum is available to download for free via The Northern Block website.
