Parisine Plus was designed in 1999 as an informal version of Parisine. A reaction to the subjective functionalism of Parisine. In fact, when Parisine try to express neutrality (a typeface is never neutral), Parisine Plus has fun with contrasts and not-so-obvious additions for a sans family. Parisine Plus is a precursor in the way it offers many ligatures and strange forms we generally find more in serif typefaces families that express historical connotations.

The various Parisine Plus typeface subfamilies

Parisine Plus is organised in various subsets, from the original family Parisine Plus (4 compatible fonts), Parisine Plus Gris featuring lighter versions of the usual Regular and Bold (4 compatible fonts), Parisine Plus Claire featuring extra light weights (4 compatible fonts), to Parisine Plus Sombre with his darker and extremly black weights as we can seen in Frutiger Black or Antique Olive Nord (4 compatible fonts). Each member of the family is composed of more than 900 glyphs and feature thousand of kerning pairs. Many years of adjustments were necessary to refine this complex family.

With 6 stylist sets (in Pro version), many combinations are available to the user, ranging from muted variations to extreme, colorful effects to apply to any text. Its a fancy and radical typeface to be used with moderation (at your convenience indeed) in a sense that any word, sentence set in Parisine Plus is not any more transparent to the reader.

Parisine Plus allows for the composition of numerous Latin-script European languages. OpenType features available in OpenType Pro versions offer:
1. Fancy alternates;
2. Fancy and uncommon ligatures (fi… and st… ligatures are activated through the usual ligature and special ligature features);
3. Formal alternates;
4. a-a alternates;
5. Disconnected c cedillas (for visual harmony with Parisine Plus in PostScript Type 1 format);
6. Arrows in positions from A-a to H-h.
In addition, the family has Small Caps, 4 sets of figures, fractions along with other goodies.

Not connected with Ratp and public transports, Parisine Plus was created as an informal version of Parisine. Notable use of this typeface is the identity, signage of the Musée du Quai Branly in Paris.
