Lyon Arabic Text

Khajag Apelian and Wael Morcos designed Lyon Arabic text to be a companion to Kai Bernau’s original design released in 2009, one of the first and most enduring releases in Commercial Type’s library. The typeface translates the Naskh script characteristics to a typographic context, making it ideal for long passages of texts in books and editorial design. Like the Latin, the design of the Arabic maintains simplified constructions and embraces straight-forward detailing with a visible digital touch, making for a crisp texture and a robust appearance comfortable for reading at small sizes.
