Barbieri is a casual, compressed san-serif family based on German lettering styles from the 1950s and ’60s. The original hand-drawn alphabet appeared on the cover of a Deutsche Grammophon edition of 'Der Barbier von Bagdad', an opera composed by Peter Cornelius.
Unlike many typefaces in this genre, Barbieri is a version-rich family of five weights ranging from Thin to Black. These playful, expressive styles work especially well for video games, children’s books, apps, toy brands, T-shirts, logos, packaging, posters, greeting cards, and cover art.
The set also includes discretionary ligatures, alternate forms, tabular figures, and wide language support for Central European and Baltic languages.
