About this font family
The earliest version of Salloon was what has become Salloon-Wide. It was designed a year or two before 1990 and originally called Salloon. The narrower version, which is now the regular version of the face, was constructed a few years later. There never was or has been a true lower-case set of letters for these fonts, but the narrower version introduced a second set of caps by removing the side bumps from the letters. Although Salloon may look like an old font, it is not and no historic font closely resembles it. Fonts with bold, thick stems such as Salloon invite interior decoration. The five striped versions and the shattered version of the font were produced a year or two after the construction of the narrower Salloon when the arrival of a font distortion program made it easy to cracked and stripe fonts.
