I have a thing for softer, warmer, friendlier slab serif typefaces and wanted to share my favorites (so far). Not all may be considered ”warm” such as Kulturista or Stag but they are definitely softer than say, Belizio, Rockwell or Dispatch.
I’m positively certain I’m forgetting a bunch but 17 seems to be a good number to digest.
Most of the ones I selected have a good range of weights especially a thin or light and have a delightful italic style to complement their roman counterparts.
