Arlt font family


Designed by Alejandro Lo Celso
Roberto Arlt, Argentinean writer from early XXth century, wrote some very original novels all of which ''Siete locos'' (''Seven Madmen'') is maybe the most celebrated piece. The Arlt type family is based on his oeuvre. It has a Baroque style interpretated with an expressionist, more contemporary flair. This means the type is full of intense contrasts and vivid, expressive feelings. The italics make a specially dynamic rhythm on text. The Arlt text fonts come in four weights including roman, italics, and small caps. They offer a colourful, spicy though comfortable immerse reading. They are ideal for literature books, specially for suspense novels and sordid stories of the underworld. Its use under other circumstances may be dangerous!The ''Arlt Titulo'' fonts were carefully designed to be used in titlings and other display settings. They will look more elegant at big body sizes, above 24 pt. The ''Arlt 7 Locos'', a sub-family of seven fonts, resulted of a more relaxed exploration on how to thoroughly destroy a series of carefully designed letterforms. They can be misteriously attractive when used in small text printed over rough quality papers. Finally, for the demanding designer, there are 2 decorative versions for very special occasions.
