While Adelle font is a slab serif typeface conceived specifically for intensive editorial use, mainly in newspapers and magazines, its personality and flexibility make it a real multiple-purpose typeface.
The intermediate weights deliver a very legible and neutral look when used in text sizes, providing the usual robustness expected in a newspaper font. The unobstrusive appearance, excellent texture and slightly dark color allow it to behave flawlessly in continuous text setting, even in the most demanding editorial applications.
As it becomes larger in print, Adelle font shows its personality through a series of measured particularities that make it easy to remember and identify. It has 12 styles, ranging from light to heavy, with more than 900 characters per font. Its energetic character, so inherent to slab serif fonts, becomes evident as the typeface is used for subheadings and headlines.
The OpenType Pro package of Adelle includes nearly 900 characters per weight, including small caps, fractions, old style and lining numbers, scientific superior/inferior figures, complete ordinal and inferior alphabet, and a set of symbols and arrows. It supports over 40 languages that use the Latin extended alphabet.
