Basta utilises soft contours to somewhat relieve the austerity of sharply cut roman typefaces. The upper case letters, for example, are rounded from the shoulders to the front strokes. The soft flow of the lines is supported by the manner in which the weight of the “e” and “c” is shifted almost into the horizontal. Thanks to the gentle serif endings, the lines do not move as if between tracks. It is impressive how little space is required to achieve effortless readability. Short ascenders and descenders enable smaller line spacing. Basta is therefore particularly well suited to narrow columns of text.

He smiled understandingly, much more than understandingly. It was one of those rare smiles with a quality of eternal reassurance in it, that you may come across four or five times in life. It faced, or seemed to face, the whole external world for an instant, and then concentrated on you with an irresistible prejudice in your favor. It understood you just so far as you wanted to be understood, believed in you as you would like to believe in yourself, and assured you that it had precisely the impression of you that, at your best, you hoped to convey.
