Méridien is a serif typeface designed by Adrian Frutiger and released by Deberny & Peignot in 1957 for its phototypesetting system. Méridien (typeface)_sentence_0

Intended as a typeface suitable for text use, Méridien takes inspiration from 'Latin' or wedge-serif typefaces, with their sharp, exaggerated serifs, but in a more restrained style intended to be suitable for body text, with a wide spacing. Méridien (typeface)_sentence_1

It is one of several typefaces designed by Frutiger in this genre; his Apollo for Monotype is quite similar. Méridien (typeface)_sentence_2
