Abril Fatface Font is part of a bigger type family system, Abril, which includes 18 styles for all Display and Text uses. The titling weights are a contemporary revamp of classic Didone styles, display both neutrality and strong presence on the page to attract reader attention with measured tension by its curves, good color, and high contrast.
Abril Fatface Font, in particular, is inspired by the heavy titling fonts used in advertising posters in 19th century Britain and France. The thin serifs and clean curves lend the typeface a refined touch that gives any headline an elegant appearance. The Extended Latin character set supports over 50 languages, including those from Central and Northern Europe.
The Abril font family is a credible, contemporary interpretation of a classic news face and was conceived for intensive editorial use in newspapers, magazines, and digital media. The Display styles have a strong presence and a newsy feel on the page while the Text styles were engineered from scratch to achieve the right color, texture, and overall width for comfortable, continuous reading in printed and digital environments.
Abril is designed by TypeTogether – Veronika Burian & José Scaglione. The additional weights of Abril can be seen at www.type-together.com/Abril
