Pappardelle Party

​A horizontal-stress, stencil, variable font that’s unusual because it’s a color font, but also because its variation doesn’t alter the glyph shapes like most variable fonts.

Users can generate versions with custom color palettes using DJR’s Color Font Customizer. (If the sample here is black and/or doesn’t change with the sliders, your browser doesn’t fully support variable color fonts yet.)
