Firm and resolute, the sharp, triangular wedge serifs of the new Aviano Wedge stamps your copy with the confidence of late 19th century luxury, wealth, and power. Indicative of banknotes and financial strength, the large, elegant Aviano Wedge is composed in the Latin style. Aviano Wedge takes its original footing from period signage found on a building in Asheville, NC. While shaped largely by engraved faces, the elegant Aviano Wedge maintains the extra-wide comfort and ease found with the rest of the Aviano series.
Aviano Wedge comes in six different weights and is packed with OpenType features. As a complement to these characters, Aviano Wedge includes 40 discretionary ligatures for artistic typographic compositions. To see these features in action, please see the informative .pdf brochure. OpenType capable applications such as Quark or the Adobe Creative suite can take full advantage of the automatically replacing ligatures and alternates. Aviano Wedge also includes support for all Western European languages.
This new face has also been designed to pair well with the rest of the Aviano series, including our best-selling Aviano, Aviano Serif, Aviano Sans, Aviano Didone, Aviano Flare, Aviano Contrast, and Aviano Slab. Use it alone, or combine Aviano Wedge with any of these other fonts to build the strong presence you’re looking for.
