Arlt is inspired by the novels and plays of Argentinean writer Roberto Arlt, active in the 20s and 30s. He pioneered the introduction of Lunfardo (Buenos Aires slang) into literature, and he was the first to write about the crook and the madman. His novels and plays refreshed the spirit of Hispanic literature of early 20th century, and anticipated the work of English-speaking writers such as Irvine Welsh or William Burroughs.
Arlt is a complex typeface. Its characters have vigorous counterforms. As individual shapes the letterforms can feel impulsive and capricious, but once they are combined into words, they look elegant and sober. The text line in Arlt creates a dynamic, stimulating rhythm, which is still very comfortable at immersed reading.
