Canela is a graceful display typeface that defies many of the traditional classifications. Designed by Miguel Reyes, its forms are in an ambiguous space between sans and serif, both soft and sharp, modern yet with roots in the classical. Canela began as an interpretation of Caslon, but Reyes gradually took the family in a new and unexpected direction, shedding its serifs and leaving only vestigial flaring at the ends of strokes, taking on a monumental quality influenced by his experience with stonecarving. Canela debuted in issue 5 of fashion and art magazine Document Journal, where its sober elegance complemented a melancholic moment in fashion. Delicate in its lightest form, with its gently flared strokes, as the weight increases to the blackest weights it takes on entirely different feeling of warmth with a quiet confidence.
