Adobe released the Kamono Kana series, composed of the three kana-only subset typeface families: Logo Line, Logo Arl and Logo Cut in the early 1990s. Now, the Kamono Kana typeface families can be used on Adobe Fonts.
The Logo Line typeface family, in particular, was used widely as glass-grid fonts for manual phototypesetting machines in the 1980s. Fundamental characteristics of the Logo Line design are shared with the other typeface families in the Kamono Kana series. Logo Line is characterized by the fluent horizontal line alignment and consistency, and the typeface is especially effective for display purposes. Each character is designed to be relatively large, with the curved elements of a stroke smoothly connected to the linear elements, which gives a brightness and gentleness. Four weight variations are available, and the typeface can be used for display purposes as well as a wider range of purposes.
(Please note this technical limitation before using the fonts: Fonts in this typeface family do not include alphanumeric characters other than full-width numbers. When the IME on your OS is used, “roma-ji” input characters will not be displayed.)
