Arnold Böcklin (typeface)
It is probably the best-known Art Nouveau typeface.
The font had a renaissance in the 1960s and 70s as part of the general Art Nouveau revival in popular design. Its influence can be seen in the work of illustrators such as Roger Dean. The Stuckist artist Paul Harvey has also used the typeface in his work.
Because it was included in early versions of Corel Draw under the name "Arabia", it became connected with Middle East and Oriental themes and used in a variety of contexts, from kebab restaurants to colonial shops, despite having little in common with actual Arabian lettering.
The logo of White Dwarf magazine from the late 1970s to the early '80s used the font.
The band Dinosaur Jr has used the font on various album covers.
