הטונדרה הארקטית מופיעה בחצי כדור הארץ הצפוני הרחוק, מצפון לחגורת הטייגה. השם טונדרה מתייחס לרוב רק לאזורים בהם הרובד התת־קרקעי הוא קפאת־עד, או אדמה קפואה לצמיתות. (הוא עשוי גם להתייחס למישורים חסרי העצים, ואז גם צפון לפלנד יכלל). הטונדרה הקפואה כוללת אזורים נרחבים בצפון רוסיה וקנדה. האנשים המתגוררים בטונדרה הארקטית הם בדרך כלל רועי איילים נוודים. המגוון הביולוגי בטונדרה מצומצם. ישנם מינים מעטים בעלי אוכלוסיות גדולות. בעלי חיים עיקריים הם: הקאריבו, כבש המושק, אייל הצפון, ארנבת הקוטב, שועל השלג, הלמינג ודובי הקוטב (האחרונים רק בקצה הצפוני). בשל האקלים הקשה בטונדרה הארקטית, ידעו אזוריה ניצול מועט למרות עושרה במשאבים טבעיים כמו נפט ואורניום. בתקופה האחרונה החל הדבר להשתנות, ובאלסקה, רוסיה ואזורים נוספים החלה הטונדרה להיות מופרעת בשל התערבות אנושית.

In physical geography, tundra is a type of biome where the tree growth is hindered by low temperatures and short growing seasons. The term tundra comes through Russian тундра (tûndra) from the Kildin Sami word meaning ‘uplands’, ‘treeless mountain tract’. Tundra vegetation is composed of dwarf shrubs, sedges and grasses, mosses, and lichens. Scattered trees grow in some tundra regions. The ecotone (or ecological boundary region) between the tundra and the forest is known as the tree line or timberline. There are three regions and associated types of tundra.Arctic tundra,[2] alpine tundra,[2] and Antarctic tundra.[3].

The Backstory

Adelle Sans Hebrew

An organic, low-contrast Hebrew font family that is flexible and personable in global text environments

Adelle Sans Hebrew is Liron Lavi Turkenich’s translation of the Latin’s forms into the voice of more than nine million people. The original Adelle Sans, José Scaglione and Veronika Burian’s award-winning sans serif, provides a more clean and spirited take on the traditional grotesque sans. As is typical with TypeTogether typefaces, the most demanding editorial design problems were taken into consideration when creating Adelle Sans Hebrew. The combination of lively character and unobtrusive appearance inherent to grotesque sans serifs make it an utterly versatile tool for every imaginable situation. Whether for branding, signage, editorial, or advertising, the keyword behind Adelle Sans Hebrew’s use is flexibility.

Adelle Sans Hebrew is available in seven weights that capitalise on legibility and provide the designer a wide range of text emphasis within their layout. By creating weights from Ultra Thin to Heavy, the Hebrew is a perfect counterpart to the Latin in tone, vertical proportions, and functionality. This ensures an harmonious fit between both type families in the same block of text and a pleasing change of texture when used at similar point sizes.

Rooted in the belief that broad language support is crucial to modern type design, Adelle Sans Hebrew is yet another push in TypeTogether’s ongoing multilingual efforts. Adding language support is not a simple act of matching geometry stroke for stroke; each script must harmonise with the others while still maintaining its own identity. Hebrew script is inherently more square than Latin, with a mix of rounded corners and straight stems that are built with discrete strokes. The rigidity of Adelle Sans Hebrew is therefore as expected for its Latin counterpart. The Adelle family’s naturally clean and spirited shapes lend themselves to an agile Hebrew translation of the colour and feel of the Latin, matching the overall functionality, purpose, and cultural awareness.

Across the entire multilingual family — Arabic, Armenian, Chinese, Cyrillic, Devanagari, Greek, Georgian, Lao, Latin, Latin Extended, Thai, and now Hebrew, with more on the way — each has been engineered to optically match the proportions of its counterparts. Adelle Sans Hebrew’s exhaustive character set and OpenType support delivers consistent, flexible, and personable results in digital and printed multilingual documents and multicultural branding.
