Tipo Pepel (was: Antaviana Typeface Division, or: Astramat) [Josep Pep Patau i Bellart]

Antaviana Typeface Division is a Catalan foundry, est. ca. 2002. It went also under the name Astramat and was also known as ANTAVIANA SERVEIS INTERACTIUS, SCCL. Located in Lleida, it is run by Josep Patau i Bellart (b. 1971, Les Borges Blanques, Lleida). Patau i Bellart offered free fonts, as well as commercial fonts. He has emerged as one of the most talented contemporary Spanish type designers. In 2011, he started Tipo Pepel [MyFonts link] in Les Borges Blanques. Josep Patau's typefaces:

  • Free typefaces: Lletraferida (2011, a didone), Negrona (2011, a revival of Lucian Bernhard's Bernhard Negro, 1930), Perolet, Lango, Gimenells, Arbeka, Rosango, Antaviana, FoxScript (1996, old typewriter), Unregistered, and FistroRatted (grunge).
  • At Astramat, one could download these fonts: Anmari (2002), Antaviana (1996), Arbeka (2002), FAXADA (2001, by Cel Tico Petit), FoxScriptNormal (1996, old typewriter), Gastada (2001, another grunge font by Cel Tico Petit), Gimenells (2001, pixel font), Gorchs (2007, script font), Klander (1999, pixel font), Lang (2001, pixel font family), Masterfly (2007, T-26), Omellons (2001, pixel font family), Perolet (2001, Bauhaus style), Pixelade (2001, pixel font), Rosango (1996), Tiquet (2001, grunge font by Cel Tico Petit), Ultrafat (2007, T-26), Fistro Ratted.

  • T-26 fonts: the screen typeface PixScript (2004), the screen icon dingbat font Pixelade Icons (2003), the art nouveau headline font Gisele (2003, angular art deco titling face), Masterfly (2007), Gopal (2004), Gourmet (2004, based on a type from the 1923 ATF catalog), Confetti (2006, connected fifties style face based on a 1930 type called Escritura Maravilla and Escritura Energica by the José Iranzo foundry in Barcelona), the pixel family Bit Kit (2003), Houdini Icons (20 pixel web icon dingbat typefaces, 2004).
  • At ATypI 2009 in Mexico City, he explained the typographic work of the goldsmith Manuel Peleguer: The aim of this paper is to give an account of the project Peleguer, the recovering and digitialization of the work of the goldsmiths Manuel Peleguer, both father and son, who cut some printing characters between 1780 and 1784 in response to an order of the "Real Sociedad Económica Valenciana de Amigos del Pais". The result was a modern transitional typeface, with good legibility and neoclasical forms, equal in quality to those made by the Real Press (Imprenta Real) in Madrid by Pradell, Espinosa or Gerónimo Gil. Peleguer founded a press and a font foundry in 1784. Patau Bellart created a type family based on Peleguer's work called Peleguer (2009, + Ornaments).
  • Anduaga, a calligraphic typeface from the 18th century, won the Laus Prize (said to be the Spanish equivalent of the type Oscars). Anduaga is the interpretation of the script that Joseph of Anduaga proposed for teaching the first letters in the 1780 book Arte de escribir por reglas y sin Muestras ...
  • Valliciergo (2011) is a 100+-glyph calligraphic / copperplate script font that is inspired by samples from Caligrafía inglesa published in Madrid in the late nineteenth century by Spanish calligrapher Vicente Fernández Valliciergo.
