The distinct feature of Cupidus is a combination of an extremely tall x-height and evenly distributed counter spaces. It strikes a good balance between being friendly and rational. While Cupidus works brilliantly for display purposes, Cupidus Text is adjusted for continuous reading in small sizes: it has looser letter and word spacing, and a somewhat reduced x-height.
