FF Angkoon is part of the French tradition of personal, idiosyncratic type design that is exemplified by faces like François Ganeau’s Vendôme or Albert Boton’s Eras. There is also a non-Western influence at work: Xavier Dupré designed FF Angkoon while living and working in Cambodia. Though he was not attempting to capture elements of Sanskrit or characteristics of Angkor temples, he may have been influenced by the elegance of Khmer writing and architecture.
FF Angkoon received a Certificate of Excellence in Typeface Design from the TDC in 2004.
FF Angkoon supports 63 different languages such as Spanish, English, Portuguese, German and French in Latin scripts. (Please note that not all languages are available for all formats.)
