Merriweather was designed to be a text face that is pleasant to read on screens. Merriweather is an evolving project and will be updated. As of now there are 4 styles: Regular, Light, Bold, and Black. There are now Italic styles in each of these weights, too.
There is also Merriweather Sans, a sans-serif version which closely harmonizes with the weights and styles of this serif family.
Designed by Eben Sorkin, Merriweather features a very large x height, slightly condensed letterforms, a mild diagonal stress, sturdy serifs and open forms.

By the same illusion which lifts the horizon of the sea to the level of the spectator on a hillside, the sable cloud beneath was dished out, and the car seemed to float in the middle of an immense dark sphere, whose upper half was strewn with silver. Looking down into the dark gulf below, I could see a ruddy light streaming through a rift in the clouds.
