Font Designer – Grégoire Poget
The Swiss designer Grégoire Poget created Linotype Sansara™ in 1999. This font is part of the TakeType Library, chosen from the entries of the 1999 International Digital Type Design Contest. The fun font Linotype Sansara is a type experiment behind whose oriental facade hide Arabic letters, recognizable only at second glance. This font displays generous, pointed ascenders and descenders as well as a bar-like emphasis on the upper third of the figures which connects lines and words and gives them a decorative look. Linotype Sansara reveals an astounding variety of details which bring to mind 1001 Arabian Nights, flowing gowns and snake charmers. This font is best for display in point sizes of 14 or larger.
