About this font family
Parisian was designed by Morris Fuller Benton in 1928 for American Type Founders and is similar to Broadway, another M.F. Benton design from 1928. Parisian has sharp contrast between thick and thin strokes, and the lowercase letters have a small x-height and very tall ascenders.
Since its release, Parisians lean and elegant Art Deco style has made it very popular for stationery printers and for other occasional and display applications.
