The Arlt super family pays tribute to the writings of Roberto Arlt, Argentinian writer from early 20th c. who wrote some original novels, all of which 'Siete Locos' ('Seven Madmen') is the most celebrated piece. Arlt has a Baroque style interpreted 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 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 headings, titles, and other display settings. They will look more elegant at big body sizes, above 24 pt.
The ‘Arlt Deco’ are two sets of ornamental capitals ideal for singular situations, lettering pieces, initials, logos, inscriptions. Both were inspired by 19th century decorative types, and specially the number 2 will show its charm at huge sizes.
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.
'Arlt Lanzallamas' is the ultimate addition, a crazy font based on a dynamic cycle that makes the font jump among the 7 Locos fonts each time you type in a character. The length of the cycle is determined by the text line. It is exciting to use it in any OpenType-sensitive application. Have fun.
Arlt text was prized by the Creative Review type design contest, London 2006, and later the complete Arlt family was one of the Typographica Favorite Typefaces of 2008. Read more about Arlt at PampaType.com.
