What is the Astaire Pro font?
This is a deco-style text OpenType Pro font loosely based on Koch’s Locarno as seen in KochAltschrift a recent free German tribute to Koch’s work.
I was familiar with Meek’s Letraset presstype version called Locarno, but I never liked the proportions used by either Meeks or Koch. So I radically revised ascender, descender, and x-height to make them more usable and brought the shapes within my sense of design. Mine is probably closer to Meeks than Koch, but hopefully it is a tribute to both. Astaire looks much more modern and it is much more usable. More…
I added oldstyle figures, small cap figures, small caps, several ligatures, and more. There are an italic, bold, and bold italic also in this family
