An italic typeface for personal-feeling letterforms.
The typeface follows the humanist model of Ludovico Arrighi's italic type from Renaissance
Italy, but its calligraphic details have been simplified to create a friendly voice. Pigeon also
incorporates some of the "sparkle" that gives drama to the Dutch Baroque types of Johannes
Fleischmann, referencing the nobility of letter-writing.
The Lost Type Co-op is a collaboration between Tyler Galpin and Riley Cran. It was founded with the intention of providing unique and quality fonts based on a pay-what-you-want model. All designers get 100% of the donations their font receives. Find out more about our story.
