FF Absara Headline and FF Absara Sans Headline are display extensions that type designer Xavier Dupré created for his successful FF Absara family.
These additions make FF Absara an even stronger tool for magazine and advertising designers. FF Absara Headline and FF Absara Sans Headline have increased x-heights and slightly narrower characters than the base FF Absara letters. Both display families also offer Black weights for extra impact. The serifs in FF Absara Headline Black are so serifs that the typeface almost looks like a slab serif, adding another flavor to the multifaceted family.
“It is perhaps not terribly original nowadays to add a headline version,” reports Dupré, “but it is fun to see one’s typeface change character in different guises. So the temptation is hard to resist.”
FF Absara Sans Headline supports 101 different languages such as Spanish, English, Portuguese, German and French in Latin scripts. (Please note that not all languages are available for all formats.)
