Ferrus is named after the location of famous French foundry Deberny & Peignot which was at 18 Rue Ferrus, XIV Paris.
Ferrus is inspired by a 1920s font named “Acier”. But Ferrus is not a revival or copy of that font, it is a new design based on a strong black and white contrast in 45 degrees, which gives the font a fake three-dimensional character. I made two cuts, a plain bold one and a Smallcaps version, like this you get two fonts for a fair price.
