Regula™ Regula™

Regula is a Baroque alphabet taken over from a historical model including the latter’s inaccuracies and uneven letter edges. It reminds one of the character of letterpress, but if we were to be consistent, the letters which repeat themselves should also differ from each other, which is not possible in the case of digital setting. It is named after the secular monastic order Regula Pragensis, in honour of the inspiration which emanates from every moment spent in the presence of the members of this order with a glass of some good beverage.

The idea of a brand-new grotesk is certainly rather foolish – there are already lots of these typefaces in the world and, quite simply, nothing is more beautiful than the original Gill. The sans-serif chapter of typography is now closed by hundreds of technically perfect imitations of Syntax and Frutiger, which are, however, for the most part based on the cool din-aesthetics. The only chance, when looking for inspiration, is to go very far...

Farao™ Farao™

If a text is set in a good Egyptienne, we can observe a kind of sparkle in the lines. Egyptiennes are cheerful type faces, possibly due to the fact that they developed simultaneously with sans-serif faces. The design principle of a sign from the first half of the 19th century does not have such firm and long-established roots as for example, the Renaissance Roman type face; it is, therefore, much more prone to mistakes which are symptoms of a “decline”.

Zeppelin™

Zeppelin™ Zeppelin™

Outside letterings, either hand-painted or machine-cut, have always a solid skeleton, clearly apparent in all weights and widths. Zeppelin shares much of those inspiration sources and its consistent monolienar drawing is nearly naive, with no trace of expression. That’s common to most of universal typefaces with a very broad field of application. Zeppelin type family is very good in magazines, posters, advertising, information systems inside/outside buildings, in traffic, being extremely legible in smallest point sizes or from longest distance.

Bahnhof™ Bahnhof™

Poster type faces from the twenties and thirties are enjoying a new wave of popularity. The summary, even rather hard principle of the sign is required for a view from a distance. The information appearing on the poster must be readable even from the opposite pavement. And, as is often the case with monumental type faces, these type faces are legible even in small sizes. The name Bahnhof suggests the hypothetical use of the type face on railway station buildings.

St Croce

St Croce St Croce

This typeface is based on worn-out lettering on tombstones in the St. Croce Basilica in Florence. For hundreds of years, microscopic particles of marble are being carried away on the soles of visitors: the embossed figures become fossilized white clouds, fragments of inscriptions are nearing the limits of legibility. First missing are thin joins and serifs, then the main strokes finally slowly diminish into nothingness over time. Unlike an archaeologist, for whom even a completely featureless stele is valuable, the typographer must capture the proper moment of wear, when the type is not too “new” but also not too much decimated.
Such a typeface is usable for catalogs, book jackets, invitations and posters.

From what we can tell, Justus Erich Walbaum probably never intended to create a sans-serif typeface. As it is quite difficult to find an appropriate sans-serif counterpart to the Walbaum 2010 Pro that would share the same austere German feeling, vertical proportions, OTF features and multi-lingual support, we took the liberty to create one. Among the useful benefits you may find Cyrillics, Small Caps and several sorts of figures. It can be used not only along its older serifed brother, but also independently on posters, in magazines and catalogues.

Where Modern is too fragile and Century too boring, Hercules comes with its elegant forms and, at the same time, with sufficient firmness to be usable for longer texts. In its heavy, bold designs it approaches Falstaff, while in the light ones it has some features which are taken over from Didot or from Modern. The text designs have been corrected for small sizes. The range of its use is, therefore, quite extensive - from dictionaries and technical literature through magazines to art posters and advertising materials.

Another variation on the Renaissance-Baroque Roman face, it extends the selection of text type faces. In comparison with Jannon, the contrast within the letters has been enhanced. The dynamic elements of the Renaissance Roman face have been strengthened in a way which is illustrated best in the letters “a”, “b” and “s”. These letters contain, in condensed form, the principle of this type face - in round shapes the dark stroke invariably has a round finial at one end and a sharp one at the other. Another typical feature is the lower-case “g”; the upper part of this letter consists of two geometrically exact circles, the inner of which, a negative one, is immersed down on the right, upright to the direction of the lower loop and the upright knob.

The idea to add an original sans-serif to the Tyfa’s Roman got Jan Solpera at teatime in Domanín during the “typographic weather” at the end of October 2013. We started to work on this interesting task immediately. We already had something to build upon: Týfa left his opinion on sans-serif type in several versions of Juvenis, then Antikva itself offers a wide range of building blocks for a sans-serif alphabet. The proportions are chosen so that the new sans would combine well with the favourite Academica. It has five weights with italics, and small caps, Cyrillics, numerals, ligatures and other OpenType features coincide exactly with the Tyfa Antikva. It can be used everywhere you need an extremely readable and stylish font.

Times with a Human Face: In my article of the same name which appeared in the magazine Font, volume 2000 I described the long and trying story of an order for a typeface for the Czech periodical Lidové noviny (People’s Newspaper). My task was to design a modification of the existing Times. The work, however, finally resulted in the complete re-drawing of the typeface. The assignment, which was on the whole wisely formulated, was to design a typeface which would enable “a smooth flow of information in the reader’s eye”, therefore a typeface without any artistic ambitions, from which everything which obstructs legibility would be eliminated. A year later Lidové noviny had a different manager who in the spring of 2001 decided to resume the cooperation. The typeface itself definitely profited from this; I simplified everything which could be simplified, but it still was not “it”, because the other, and obviously more important, requirement of the investor held: “the typeface must look like Times”. And that is why the above-mentioned daily will continue to be printed by a system version of Times, negligently adjusted to local conditions, which is unfortunately a far cry from the original Times New Roman of Stanley Morison.

Plagwitz™ Plagwitz™

Plagwitz is the name of the part of Leipzig where the Werkstätten and Museum für Buchkunst are to be found, which, in September 2000, hosted the ATypI Congress. During the lecture on Black Letter type faces, a lovely quotation from Bismarck could be heard: “I never read German books set in Roman type.” These circumstances gave me the idea that it would be nice to create some distinctive Black Letter type face. The best Black Letter type faces we know date from the Gothic period, when books were copied by hand, with the use of a bevelled quill. Our alphabet still takes into account Neo-Classical influences when decorative ascenders of upper case letters were added. In 19th-century typography, such Black Letter type faces were frequently complemented with Didot-type Roman faces and steel-engraver’s scripts. I, too, would recommend to combine Plagwitz-Gotisch with type faces like, for example, Hercules, Genre, Excelsor Script and Splendid Quartett.
