Idiom was designed by Michael Jarboe and published by Reserves. Idiom contains 4 styles and family package options.  

Idiom is an extra-condensed, tightly spaced display face with congruent forms exuding a strong sense of rhythm and elevation. The basic stenciled geometric shapes are reminiscent of the decorative style found with P22 Albers and Futura Black. Careful consideration of each letter's construction, relative to all characters, lends Idiom a decided sense of cohesion and sophistication.

The included non-traditional 'weights' (Medium and Bold) are completely blacked out, creating entirely new letterforms that exhibit a very stark, contemporary sense.

Increasing the versatility of the Idiom family, a selection of OpenType features allow access to a set of contrasting linear punctuation forms, unconventional ligatures, case-sensitive punctuation and more.

Features include:

Basic Ligature set including 'f' ligatures (ae, oe, fi, fl, ff, fh, fj, ft, fa, ct, st, rt, ot, ta, sa, mi, si, vi, su, oc, oo, ru, ib)

Alternate characters (M, W, T, ß, _, $, @, (), {}, [], /, \, |, -, –, -, +, -, ±, ≤, ≥,

Case forms (shifts various punctuation marks vertically to a position that works better with all-capital sequences, in this case the numerals or letters with ascenders)

Slashed zero

Full set of numerators/denominators and superscript/subscript

Automatic fraction feature (supports any fraction combination)

Extended language support (Latin-1 and Latin Extended-A)

*Requires an application with OpenType and/or Unicode support.
