Reading font for iPad reading

Athelas, based on a design created by José Scaglione when he was an MA student of the Typeface Design course, is now one of the fonts selected for Apple’s iBook app on the iPad. Athelas was reworked by Scaglione and fellow MATD alumna Veronika Burian for their foundry TypeTogether; it was part of the Tipos Latinos exhibition 2006, and was selected as winner of the Granshan competition 2008 in the text type category.
