Showcasing animals from all the corners of the world, Fabel goes beyond the basic Latin A-Z. Each character has it’s own diacritics and language specific characters merge language and habitat into one glyph: The IJ is shaped as a Dutch Keeshond and Scandinavian characters such as the Ø and Å take the form of a Reindeer, and Arctic Fox.
The punctuation of Fabel merges glyph, context and animal, keeping the theme of an animal font true in all characters: A snail replaces the period, the monster of Loch Ness is a big question mark, the ampersand merges Elephant and Tapir and the lemniscate poses the question: What came first: The chicken or the egg?
Many animal fonts take an existing font as a base, adding whiskers and tails to lettershapes. Fabel however, takes the animal as starting point for the letter, making it possible to showcase animals at their finest.
Opentype features are used to enrich Fabel, adding features such as ligatures and old-style numerals. Ligatures allow special versions of animal combinations (such as the letters ff, fl and fi) while the old-style numerals transform the animals into prehistoric beasts!
Fabel offers you plenty design possibilities! The three different weights, Line, Inner and Filled allow you to layer texts in any combination you like. Layer line over inner, or use inner or filled alone on a background. Buy Fabel and you get all of the styles at once!
