font family


Designed by Adrian Frutiger in 1957
Méridien™ was developed in the mid-1950s, and released by the French foundry Deberny & Peignot in 1957. After studying a typeface from the sixteenth century, the Swiss designer Adrian Frutiger was inspired to create an alphabet without any completely straight strokes, and he hoped the reader of a text set in this typeface would feel as though wandering through a forest. The designer of more than 100 typefaces, Frutiger considers Méridien to be his best. With its slightly flared stems and triangular shaped serifs, Méridien is at once sharp, graceful, arresting, and sensuous; much like a forest. Use the roman when you want to create a distinctive graphic expression in book text. For posters and websites, the italic or the bold weights or even the roman set in all caps will give an impression of quiet dignity.

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.

Standard Ligatures

Tag: liga

Function: Replaces a sequence of glyphs with a single glyph which is preferred for typographic purposes. This feature covers the ligatures which the designer/manufacturer judges should be used in normal conditions. The glyph for ffl replaces the sequence of glyphs f f l.

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.
