Abaton was designed by Luis Siquot in 1997 as an ornamented typeface with exclusively capitals, regular and small caps. The letter outlines are filled with individual horizontal strokes, giving the characters a lighter feel. The forms are based on the rectangle and finished with small, triangular serifs. Abaton is reminiscent of the style popular in the early industrial period, first used in France in 1830, and is intended exclusively for headlines.
