About this font family
Tobias Frere-Jones began Armada in 1987. An experiment in algorithmic design, Armada follows the verticals and flat arches so often to be found in the architectural geometry of cast iron and brickwork in nineteenth-century American cityscapes.
All of the weights and widths of Armada were drawn by Frere-Jones, offering a full display series of remarkable richness, all variations in a truly architectural theme and discipline.
Among other uses, Armada is recommended for Magazine and Corporate use.
