About Ambroise Std François
Ambroise is a contemporary interpretation of various typefaces belonging to Didot’s late style, conceived circa 1830. Ambroise attempts to reproduce what we see on 19th century printed paper; a more accurate representation of Didot punches. The unbracketed serif uses tiny transitional curves instead of the true square straight-line forms. The result is a softer and less straight appearance on the page, particularly at larger sizes. Every variation of the typeface carries a name in homage to a member of type founders and printers in the illustrious Didot family. The condensed variant is called Ambroise Firmin. The extra-condensed is called Ambroise François.
