Pigeon

Pigeon

The typeface follows the humanist model of Ludovico Arrighi’s italic type from Renaissance Italy, but its calligraphic details have been simplified to create a friendly voice. Pigeon also incorporates some of the “sparkle” that gives drama to the Dutch Baroque types of Johannes Fleischmann, referencing the nobility of letter-writing.

This font is available on a pay-what-you-want basis, though I recommend making a donation to the designer.
