About this font family
The Gala Condensed fonts come because of popular demand. Ever since Canada Type released the Gala set, we keep receiving e-mail asking us for a condensed version. So here it is. The original Gala fonts were a revival of Giulio da Milano’s 1935 Neon Design for the Italian Nebiolo foundry. That design was the immediate predecessor of the popular Microgramma family, which became the definitive modern 20th century expression of friendly letter forms. The appeal of the Gala’s design lies in the rare combination of informal elegance that these letters make. And now that the condensed version is here, the elegance of these letters can be used to construct wordy headlines where space is a concern, or simply mark a design in an elegant out-of-the-way manner that is a statement by itself. Gala Condensed comes in three weights: regular, medium and bold.
