Chrysaora is based on Art Deco engraved letters, on the Palais de la Porte dorée (Palace of the Golden Gate) in Paris. Chrysaor is the son of Poseidon and Medusa, the brother of Pegasus. His mother’s hairs were turned into snakes by Athena after Medusa stained her temple. A statue of Athena, as a symbol of triumphant France, adorns the Palais de la Porte dorée.
Chrysaora is available in 3 weights, and can be used to set 105 languages, including Vietnamese and its numerous accented characters. It also has many special ligatures.
