Fedra Sans Armenian
Armenian is the official language of the Republic of Armenia and is widely spoken by the communities of the Armenian Diaspora. Aybuben, the Armenian alphabet is a distinctive script, an alphabet with 38 letters and 5 ligatures, which was created in the 5th century specifically for writing the Armenian language. Fedra Sans Armenian applies the basic design principles of the Fedra font family to the Armenian alphabet, making it suitable for use both in text and display typography. It includes the necessary ligatures and the currency symbol for the Armenian dram. Like all Typotheque fonts, it is Unicode-compliant.
Fedra Sans is Typotheque’s most extensive font. Besides the Latin, the font family supports also Armenian, Bengali, Cyrillic, Devanagari, Greek, Hebrew, Inuktitut, and Tamil writing scripts, supporting over 2 billion native speakers.
