Darby Sans Poster Condensed

High-contrast sans serifs offer a form of beauty and refinement we more typically associate with serif letters of luxury and elegance. Darby Sans Poster mixes the traditional form of the transitional letter with a stripped down sans form to create a modern display form. Sans letters with high contrast reappeared in Britain in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, and Darby Sans Poster draws on these sources: lettering found on memorials, lettering on coins, and later in the typefaces of the Figgins foundry. The Condensed is a later addition, designed for editorial usage.
