Probably the best-known Art Nouveau typeface, the font had a renaissance in the 1960s and 1970s 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 and the Stuckist artist Paul Harvey.
Because it was included in early versions of CorelDRAW software 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 1980s used the font.
The band Dinosaur Jr. has used the font on various album covers.
The 1989 videogame Hippodrome by Data East used the font on the title screen.
The British band Jamiroquai used it for the design of their first album release 'Emergency on Planet Earth'
