Tarnac is the synthesis of several Slab serif inspirations that have been laying around in a folder for a while. First was the historical type used on french roadsigns, a chunky slanted typeface set on concrete and ceramic. Then came a very special hot metal type spotted on a 1910 Fonderie Turlot specimen catalogue and also italic only, called Égyptiennes Penchées Noires. On the same line is the very unique Akenaton designed by living legend Jean Alessandrini at Studio Hollenstein, and many newspaper header typefaces in France and Italy.
