Valencia AMA Typeface


Valencia AMA is a display typeface created from letterforms found in a publication associated with the Spanish Civil War era feminist communist organization Agrupación de Mujeres Antifascistas (AMA).

Slab serif fonts were especially popular in Spanish graphic design from that era and this particular slab serif was deliciously irregular. It has a right serif off the ‘A’, a left serif off only the bottom of the ‘E’, and a left serif that appears then later disappears from the ’N’.

This version in the font pack includes profuse alternate glyphs so you can make your own unilateral serifs point whatever direction you please. It also includes a more consistent version (with bilateral serifs), then a sans serif version, and finally a non-oblique (upright) sans serif version; a total of four fonts in this family.
