As he tried to describe it, imagination failed him
The array of brilliant lights, dividing itself, formed into two disks which, revolving oppositely, sang the praises.
This order was inverse to that of the heavens
Had Beatrice smiled as they ascended to Saturn, Dante would have perished as did Semele
The ample Rose unfolded its leaves before him, breathing praise and perfume, and as he gazed into it Beatrice pointed out the radiant spirits and the thronged seats, one of which was reserved for the Emperor Henry II.
He examined the trembling poet on faith, and his questions

Elido™ (Odile in reverse) is the sans counterpart to Odile, a serif type. Together they form a sans and serif superfamily with a wide range of variations for editorial and display use. Elido follows Odile’s proportions and matches the weight distribution and typographic color of its serif twin. Elido is a sans with classical proportions.

Odile’s conceptual approach is echoed in the structure and anatomy of the Elido family. The arched stroke low off the stem reveals a script characteristic most pronounced in the Elido Upright Italic. This particular interpretation is gradually diminished in the Italic and becomes even less emphasized in the Regular style. Six balanced weights, from an elegant Light to a pronounced Black, are in tune with three display solutions and a set of beautiful Ornaments.

Sans serif initials amount to a rare finding. The charming mono-linear Elido Initials come in two flavors, elaborate and rational, designed to hold their own in editorial and headline sizes. This type design boasts an extensive character set and many OpenType features. OT stylistic variants (with accents) offer a one-storey ‘a’ for the roman weights, alternate ‘g’ and ‘s’ designs for the italics, and a variant glyph ‘s’ for the Upright Italic. These distinct qualities with its versatile and sincere traits, make Elido an excellent choice for editorial and display use.
