Walter Tracy’s AdSans has been enjoying a resurgence in popularity over the past decade, in no small part from the digital revivals employed by Dutch designer Karel Martens. Adora is a revival of Tracy’s design, but with more attention paid to spacing and kerning for smooth text setting. It has a large x-height and reads well at small point sizes. A range of ligatures have been created for smooth text-setting and detailed display work. Two modular pattern characters are included, custom-spaced so that designers can create seamless patterns to accompany typography using Adora, or to be used as a standalone design feature.
