Created by Adobe type designer Carol Twombly, Chaparral combines the legibility of slab serif designs popularized in the 19th century with the grace of 16th-century roman book lettering. The result is a versatile, hybrid slab-serif design, a unique addition to the Adobe Originals family of typefaces. Unlike geometric slab serif designs, Chaparral has varying letter proportions that give it an accessible and friendly appearance in all weights from light to bold. Like the drought-resistant brush that blooms on the arid coastal range near Twomblys California home, Chaparrals highly functional design is surprisingly beautiful.
