What is the Ardone font?

Ardone is a well-modulated humanist serif font family with Garalde roots. A distant ancestor is Minister (a German font designed by Fahrenwaldt in 1929) through my first font, Diaconia Old Style.
This first style, book, is slightly condensed and very elegant with thin bracketed serifs. There are many OpenType features with over 600 characters: Caps, lower case, small caps, ligatures, discretionary ligatures, swashes, small cap figures, old style figures, numerators, denominators, accent characters (including CE), ordinal numbers (1st-infinity: lining and oldstyle), and so on.

Ardone is designed for text use in body copy.

You're probably thinking - Is Ardone available to Download for free?

The short answer is no. Ardone is definitely not available as a free download font. This is a premium font which mean that you will have to pay to download and use it in your project. We showcase fonts on SharedFonts that are almost all premium fonts. Feel free to waste valuable hours of your time searching for a free download of Ardone, but take it from me, you will not be successful in your quest. Just think how much time and effort you will save if you just pay for Ardone and be done with it.

It is always best to pay for a premium font rather than trying to find an illegal download. The benefits of paying for Ardone is that you get the license to use it leagally. If you're using an illegal version of Ardone and you get caught, you or your client could get into some trouble legally with the publisher of Ardone.

In the rare occasion that you do find a free download for Ardone remember that it's illegal to use a font if you didn't pay for it!
