Rongel is a historical revival, an interpretation of the types of Rongel shown in Muestras de los punzones y matrices de letra que se funde en el obrador de la Imprenta Real, Madrid, 1799. It was first released as single weight with italics followed by two new weights, bold and semibold. Conceived as a text face (not all text has to be really small!), it also works good as a display and titling font. Rongel was selected as one of 'favorite fonts of 2004', (a selection of favorites promoted by the Typographica website). The new OpenType version of Rongel has small caps, table figures, etc. accessible through OpenType features and an extended character set supporting most of latin based languages.
