About this font family
Nantua is inspired by the Russian Constructivism from the early 1920s. Artists like Aleksandr Rodchenko used typography as forms.
Nantua can be used with that very same principal. It’s a very geometrical display font with hard edges. Used in big sizes it is very ‘in your face’. Used in small sizes it tends to work like a compact background pattern.
With very small inner forms, Nantua needs to be used in big sizes to be legible. It’s preferably seen on posters or flyers.
