Arlandes Typeface

Being true to the elements of a Didone typeface, Arlandes features strong stroke contrast; a completely vertical stress and thin, hairline serifs without brackets.

Arlandes is named after the Marquis François d’Arlandes who engaged the Duchess of Polignac’s aid in success­fully petitioning King Louis XVI to allow François d’Arlandes and Jean-François Pilâtre de Rozier to be the first to fly an untethered hot air balloon.
