‘Your typeface Gentium is a “friendly” font to me. It’s easy to read and its lines and visual connections flow gently.’

‘I needed a nice serif font with haceks and other diacriticals... and was very happy to find your Gentium. Thank you for making this available to us poorer academic perfectionists!’

‘Perhaps I shouldn’t care so, but esthetics matters. My refined thanks.’
