Trivia Grotesk

48 fonts from $49.00
Trivia Grotesk Trivia Grotesk

Another 48-cut family from a typeface system which originally arose from the need to simply explain to some publishers what it is “serif, sans-serif, egyptian”, etc. including their style variations. Over time, the Trivia became quite popular, which was her goal. Now is the opportunity to explain what it is “grotesque.” Grotesque in art is generally synonymous with bizarre, repulsive impropriety, but also surreal abomination exciting an empathic pity. These are qualities that undoubtedly attract the viewer’s attention since the days of Gothic gargoyles, stone gorgons and chimeras. Grotesque font is unlike the cold sans-serif much warmer, more appealing for the title, poster or advertisement, and is usually given in a variety of widths and weights. With our Trivia it shares basic proportions and OpenType features.

Walbaum 2010 Pro™ Walbaum 2010 Pro™

Upon numerous demands of highly esteemed users of our fonts I decided to suppement the Walbaum type family by display and poster cuts. Because I obviously cannot compete with world’s renowned type foundries which already offer a number of renderings of forenamed typeface, I thought proper to decline a bit from the original Walbaum’s design, strictly speaking, from the apprehension we commonly keep about this typeface. Therefore I didn’t set forth the way of modernizing (shame!), but rather the opposite direction: towards an analysis of the original neo-classical intention. I took the 10-point character, magnified it enormously and cut off progressively all the optically thickened bobbles which raised by small-size correction. I ended up at the size of about 120 points, where it became obvious that any further thinning would lead to an undesired manneristic fragility. Resulting 8-member family Walbaum 120 is naturally usable in variety of sizes, as well as cuts marked “10” you can use, say, from 6 to 30 points. I only hope that mister Justus Erich won’t pull me by the ear when we’ll meet on the other side...

Splendid™

Splendid™ Splendid™

The traditional division of a type-face family into four designs pertains to every body type. However, jobbing typography calls for a richer tonal scale. Its purpose is to decorate, to represent and to please. Splendid Quartet is an example of a combination of heterogeneous sources of inspiration into a single harmonious formation. An American-style script is accompanied by a subtle English-type Roman type face with a bold design. The whole is reinforced with a Germanic Grotesk. The designs as such do not surpass the significance of their models, but the real charm of this family consists in the sensitive interplay of perfect, even though antagonistic shapes.

Trivia Humanist™ Trivia Humanist™

I decided to draw the Regular style of Trivia Humanist not too light and the Bold not too dark. Delicate anatomy and moderate contrasts of serifed humanist typefaces aren’t usually born by interpolating between extremes, but rather by meticulous care for each individual letter. A delicious blend of a trace of punchcutter’s tool and calligrapher’s hand with as few historical reminiscences as possible. It stays away from any strong aesthetic colorations as well, which is a common feature of the Trivia family system. I wanted a clear and majestic typeface for book jackets, LP cover designs, posters, exhibition catalogues and shorter texts. But at the end it turned out excellent for largest books as well.

Lexon Gothic is a typical newspaper, dictionary and magazine type face. It is also very suitable for children’s books and posters. The large x-height, condensed shapes and darker colour of the basic design guarantee its legibility already in small sizes and even in morning twilight.

Bhang™ Bhang™

Many visitors to India are familiar with Bhang Lassi. It’s an incommunicable experience, when one should better cancel all tomorrow’s business meetings in order to escape for a day or two to another reality. Worshippers of Shiva are allowed to buy their drugs in government approved bhang shops in many pilgrimage cities. Those fine shops have hand painted outside signs made with flat brushes of several different trail widths. The present typeface freely relates to them, but don’t use it instead of hand lettering! Take your brush, paint and a piece of (preferrably used, awry) plywood and go ahead. Use this font family only when you are unable to hold the brush...

AbaldA™

AbaldA adds to the number of “bad-taste” alphabets as seen on faded commercial inscriptions painted on neglected old houses. To enhance its warm character, some picturesque discretionary ligatures were added.

DynaGrotesk™ DynaGrotesk™

Has altogether 60 designs, because it was originally produced as a Multiple Master typeface. The entire big family is grouped into eighteen independent, smaller four-design families, of which the user may choose, for example, only two or three which suit him as regards colour and width. The somewhat confusing use of abbreviations to designate the individual designs is, nevertheless, simpler than giving them numbers or full names. The abbreviations denoting weights are as follows: L - Light, R - Regular, D - Demi; and those denoting widths are: XC - Extra Condensed, C - Condensed, M - Semi Condensed, E - Extended, XE - Extra Extended.

The Mramor family first appeared in the Stormtype catalogue in 1994. The first sketch arose in 1988 through the narrowing of Roman capitals. It has uniform width proportions and, above all, original lower-case letters, unprecedented with Roman Capitals.

Excelsor Script™

2 fonts from $32.00
Excelsor Script™ Excelsor Script™

Excelsor Script is inspired by lithographically produced scripts. It is softer and simpler than, for example, engraved Splendid Script, because its designer used pens and lithographic needles. The graver for steel is held in a quite different way and this has an influence on the shape of the letter. Similar type faces were in use from Neo-Classicism until the beginning of Art Nouveau, when they were pushed aside by a completely different view of festive typography.

Friedhof family is inspired by a tombstone lettering dated from about 1900.

Beside the solid, fat style, it contains handtooled and shadowed (Geist + Deko) variations, as well as narrowed & lowercase styles.

Note: Very complex, shadowed fonts may not work on slow machines!

Solpera™ Solpera™

This type face fills one of the gaps between the world of Roman alphabets and that of linear alphabets. The first to be designed was the set of upper-case letters. The expression of these characters cannot conceal that they were originally intended only for the sculptor’s use, as a type face for three-dimensional inscriptions. Their width proportions reflect a dialogue between the contemporary feeling and the legacy of classical Roman inscriptions.

Patzcuaro is a summer resort by a lake of the same name. It is situated 370 km west of Ciudad de Mexico and a visitor from Europe, on seeing it, will be reminded of the Austrian Rust or the South Bohemian Trebon. The town’s colonial architecture is protected as a historical monument, the reddish-brown tint of the footings of the buildings, their white facades and even the type of lettering with red initials is prescribed - and these regulations are also complied with as far as cars are concerned.
