Kessel 105 Text
Kessel 105 Text is closely related to Kessel 105. Visually very similar but with different proportions, in order to make it more economical with space, so well-suited to continuous text.
Where Kessel 105 has a large relative x-height and short ascenders and descenders, Kessel 105 Text has more traditional proportions, so a shallower relative x-height and longer ascenders and descenders.
Although still geometric in appearance and with a very round looking lower case, the shallower x-height means that when applied to upper and lower case text, Kessel 105 Text requires significantly less width and so uses less space; often a consideration when considering how many pages a document will run to, using a given typeface.
It combines well with Kessel 105 serving as a display font, or with its slab-serif cousin, Kettering 105/205.
