About this font family
While not a revival in the strictest sense of the word, Niagara recalls the crisp, elegant geometry found in some of the best American styles from the nineteen-thirties and -forties.
The four condensed weights were designed by Tobias Frere-Jones, who found inspiration in the straight-sided geometric fonts from that era. With its mixture of weights, and Engraved styles, Niagara offers the typographer unusual opportunities.
Among other uses, Niagara is recommended for Newspaper, Magazine, Book and Corporate use.
