Argentinian foundry Sudtipos routinely turns out top-notch type—and their latest release, Apothicaire, is indeed just the medicine we need for the coming winter blues.

While the name may be French for “apothecary,” Alejandro Paul and his team found inspiration in an antique German design dating back to the late 19th century.

Spanning three widths and five weights, the resulting typeface maintains unexpected quirks and delights and is capable of a wide range of expressions.

Moreover, as Sudtipos details, “An elegant small caps set, a variety of ball terminals and delicate swashes, as well as the possibility to choose from many alternates are also included in the OpenType features.”

To bring a fitting set of specimens to life, Sudtipos turned to Lucila Perini Studio, whose work you can see below.
