Background

Designer Hermann Zapf set out to create a typeface that was ideally suited to newspapers and other legibility applications. Melior is that typeface, released by the Stempel foundry in 1952.

Its straightforward but elegant design incorporates strong square serifs and condensed proportions based on the superellipse.

Melior is excellent for newsletters and business applications, such as correspondence and annual reports.
