FF Hydra OT

The idea behind FF Hydra came from the unique lettering of French poster art of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Silvio Napoleone thought the lettering of this period combined qualities of whimsy, economy and impact. Just reissued in OpenType, FF Hydra hits the scene again just in time for another revival of the wood type aesthetic. And it’s not just for poster sizes, the Text version is capable of setting many lines of readable copy. Even for the Web.
