In creating the Calvino typeface household Andrea Tartarelli set himself the difficulty to follow the concepts expressed by the Italian author Italo Calvino in his masterpiece 6 memos for the next millenium. Exactitude and presence are translated typographically through the reference to sixteen century garalde typography and its controlled, extremely understandable letterforms. To balance this formal rigour, lightness and speed were added by letting the design be influenced by the calligraphic hand, following the lesson of Gudrun Zapf. The idea of multiplicity was kept central, establishing Calvino in a variety of weights incorporating both screen and text utilize cases, and then broadening the style area with the addition of a display screen sub-family, Calvino Grande, to provide users with a full typographic scheme to cover all editorial needs. Sharing the very same formal structure, Calvino Grande sports condensed percentages, sharper information and tighter metrics. Both Calvino and Calvino Grande are complemented with a set of italic letterforms, with differences in design and slant to better work at various point size. All the 34 weights of the Calvino household included an extended Latin and Cyrillic charset, covering over two hundred languages, and all equipped with a wide variety of open type features including positional characters, alternate types, and stylistic sets. 4 variable typefaces are also included in the full plan, for any requirement of fine-tuning the typeface grade of weight.

Special thanks go to Laurène Girbal for the assistance in establishing the regular weight.
