Designed by Neville Brody in 1990
Arcadia™ was designed by British graphic design guru Neville Brody, originally as the banner for Arena magazine in 1986, and released as a font by Linotype GmbH in 1990.
Borrowing elements from Art Deco styling, Arcadia is a tall and striking geometric design with extremely condensed and contrasting forms. The alternate font has more pronounced ascenders and descenders for use at smaller point sizes. Arcadia lends eye-popping elegance to display settings for advertising, packaging, invitations, or logos.
Four original Brody fonts are available from Linotype GmbH: Insignia, Industria Solid, Industria Inline and Arcadia . His designs have received international recognition for their innovative style, reaching almost cult status."

Fractions

Tag: frac

Function: Replaces figures separated by a slash with 'common' (diagonal) fractions. The user enters 3/4 in a recipe and gets the threequarters fraction.

Ordinals

Tag: ordn

Function: Replaces default alphabetic glyphs with the corresponding ordinal forms for use after figures. One exception to the follows-a-figure rule is the numero character (U+2116), which is actually a ligature substitution, but is best accessed through this feature. The user applies this feature to turn 2.o into 2.o (abbreviation for secundo).

Superscript

Tag: sups

Function: Replaces lining or oldstyle figures with superior figures (primarily for footnote indication), and replaces lowercase letters with superior letters (primarily for abbreviated French titles). The application can use this feature to automatically access the superior figures (more legible than scaled figures) for footnotes, or the user can apply it to Mssr to get the classic form.

Stylistic Alternates

Tag: salt

Function: Many fonts contain alternate glyph designs for a purely esthetic effect; these don't always fit into a clear category like swash or historical. As in the case of swash glyphs, there may be more than one alternate form. This feature replaces the default forms with the stylistic alternates. The user applies this feature to Industria to get the alternate form of g.

Contextual Ligatures

Tag: clig

Function: Replaces a sequence of glyphs with a single glyph which is preferred for typographic purposes. Unlike other ligature features, clig specifies the context in which the ligature is recommended. This capability is important in some script designs and for swash ligatures. The glyph for ft replaces the sequence f t in Bickham Script, except when preceded by an ascending letter.
