Alejandro Paul’s Adios is a technically intricate font bursting with advanced OpenType features. It’s easily my favorite advanced OpenType font.
Inspired by lettering artist H. Wotzkow, not to mention contemporary tattoo art, Adios has a profusion of ornamental ascenders and descenders that allow extraordinary variety. The lowercase “h” alone offers 43 variants; the entire font has a staggering 1,470 glyphs.
