Summary description: Playfair Display fonts with LaTeX support

Announcement text:

 Playfair Display is well suited for titling and headlines. It
 has an extra large x-height and short descenders. It can be set
 with no leading if space is tight, for instance in news
 headlines, or for stylistic effect in titles. Capitals are
 extra short, and only very slightly heavier than the lowercase
 characters. This helps achieve a more even typographical colour
 when typesetting proper nouns and initialisms.

 The designer is Claus Eggers Sørensen.
