Arsenica Font is a Modern, Elegant Serif Typeface (OTF, TTF) designed by a team that included Mario De Libero, Andrea Tartarelli, and Cosimo Lorenzo Pancini created under the direction of Francesco Canovaro and released through Zetafonts on December 15, 2021. It’s free for personal use. The style of Arsenica was influenced by early 20th-century Italian poster art, when typography, lettering, and imagery were intricately entwined.
There are 43 different types in this contemporary and refined serif font instead of adopting modernist terminology, emerging nationalist organizations favored old Old Style letterforms, which were frequently infused with an Art Nouveau and Deco aesthetic. Artists like Giorgio Muggiani designed newspaper logos like “Il Popolo d’Italia” in addition to creating posters for Cinzano, Pirelli, and Rinascente.
Canovaro created the Arsenica Antiqua family, a display typeface that maintains the original Old Style’s low contrast, large dimensions, and eccentric aesthetic ideas, starting with this diverse mash-up of inspirations. The weight range was subsequently expanded to include both posters, ultra-bold weights, and lighter weights that give the design a particular calligraphic flavor. These were then refined in high contrast, Arsenica Display family. Creating alternate letterforms that are part of the Arsenica Alternate family, which eliminates the art nouveau features in favor of a more restrained modern serif look, was another step in bringing the letterforms into contemporary taste.
Arsenica Text, a low contrast, highly legible old-school typeface family with a reduced weight set that is designed for long body copy typesetting, was created by widening the design area in the optical size axis. The end result is a superfamily of 41 weights that fully covers more than 200 languages utilizing the Latin and Cyrillic alphabets and expands the charset to over 900 glyphs to fill the design space. All of Arsenica’s weights provide a complete range of open-type features that let you experiment with its retro-inspired aesthetic ideas.
These features include stylistic sets, optional ligatures, contextual alternatives, and positional numerals. The entire family has two variable fonts that let you carefully manage not only the weight but also the optical size design changes. This lets you explore the design space.
