Thema is a functional, highly legible type designed not only for immersive reading but also for eye-catching headlines. Its brisk clarity makes it ideal for setting text at smaller sizes, yet it has an eloquence and ﬁnesse that make it subtly distinctive at larger sizes.
Some languages such as Bulgarian, Serbian or Macedonian prefer variant letter shapes to the standard Cyrillic shapes. This feature replaces standard forms with localized ones when the text is tagged Bulgarian, Serbian or Macedonian.
Thema has localised forms for Bulgarian, Serbian and Macedonian.
