A cousin of Galette, Tertre derives its inspiration from the French signage tradition.

It is a display/short text typeface with a wide range of applications from signage to menus and pricelists, branding and packaging or publishing. It is named after Place du Tertre, a square located at the top of Montmartre—a hill overlooking Paris, made famous by the artists of the 19th and 20th Century.

Like in Galette, the letters have no overhangs and the stroke thickness of capitals and lower case letters is identical, making hinting or anti-aliasing more uniform at any point size and zoom combination. Alternate capitals with Art Nouveau flavor are provided, as well as Central European, Baltic and Turkish language support.

The Tertre™ fonts are available for sale at
