Zans Medium 65

Here is my interpretation of the font Arrow, which Walter Diethelm (a Swiss type designer) designed around 1965. She was one of 15 type designs to win an award at the 1966 International Type Face Design Competition (sponsored by Visual Graphics Corporation) alongside the famous Fritz Quadrata, Vivaldi and Amelia.

This typeface is a successful attempt to transfer the Roman capitalis into modern times without placing too much emphasis on historical ornaments. The result is a wonderful typeface that is ideal for title typesetting, elegant posters, film trailers or book titles.

But I must explain to you how all this mis­taken idea of de­noun­cing plea­sure and prai­sing pain was born and I will give you a com­ple­te ac­count of the sys­tem, and ex­pound the ac­tu­al teach­ings of the great ex­plo­rer of the truth, the ma­ster buil­der of hu­man happ­iness. No one re­jects, dis­likes, or av­oids plea­sure it­self, be­cause it is plea­sure, but be­cause those who do not know how to pursue plea­sure ra­tio­nally en­coun­ter con­se­quen­ces that are ex­tre­me­ly pain­ful. Nor again is there any­one who lov­es or pur­sues or de­sires to ob­tain pain of it­self, be­cause it is pain, but be­cause occas­ional­ly ci­rcum­stan­ces occur in which toil and pain can pro­cure him some great plea­sure.
