Here’s a flashback to the sixties, which originally went by the rather unimaginative name of Triline.

The 1905 Barnhart Brothers & Spindler catalog featured an ultrawide face called “French Antique Extended”.

The letterforms have been faithfully rendered here, but this font’s kerning calls for a lot of overlapping and interlocking that the original cast-metal face wouldn't have been able to duplicate.

A travel poster from the 1940s for Mexican tourism provided the inspiration for this voluptuous font with a strong architectural feel. A few unexpected idiosynracies in the letterforms add to its charm.
