Adrian Frutiger designed Egyptienne F™ for the Deberny & Peignot Foundry in 1956. "Egyptian" or "Egyptienne" is a typographic designation for roman typefaces with slab (or square or rectangular) shaped serifs; and those that have bracketing between main stroke and serifs (like this one) are known as "Clarendon-style Egyptians." This was the first of several Egyptians designed by Frutiger, see also Glypha and Serifa. Egyptienne F has a medium x-height and excellent character spacing for setting text in small point sizes. Legible, flexible, and neutral in appearance, Egyptienne F is a good choice for books, magazines, and on-screen presentations.
Egyptienne F supports 71 different languages such as Spanish, English, Portuguese, German and French in Latin scripts. (Please note that not all languages are available for all formats.)
