The Spanish type scene

[I split the Spanish type design scene politically (incorrectly) in three parts, the present page, a Catalan page and a Basque page]


29 Letters
[Pascal Naji Zoghbi]

Madrid (and before that, Lebanon)-based Arabic type designer who runs the Arab type news and blog site called Arabic Typography. KHTT link. An ex-student of the KABK in 2006, he currently is a part time instructor of design and typography at Notre Dame University, Louaize, Lebanon, as well as a part time instructor of typography at the American University of Beirut (AUB), both since 2007. His Arabic type foundry is called 29letters.

At ATypI 2008 in St. Petersburg, he ran a workshop on the Arabic Kufi script. Speaker at ATypI 2010 in Dublin on the topic of political resistance and expression through graffiti in Lebanon and Palestine. His contributions to type design:

  • Massira. He has embarked on a project with Martin Majoor to design some Arabic fonts that fit Majoor's designs. He writes: Massira is my graduation typeface at Type&Media postgraduate course at The Royal Academy of Arts [KABK] in The Hague. Huda AbiFares contacted me while I was finalizing Massira and presented the opportunity to collaborate with the Dutch type designer Martin Majoor to design an Arabic typeface, which is part of the Typographic Matchmaking 01 project organized by Khatt Foundation. At first I was a bit worried due to the fact that it would be my first professional type design work and that the due date was too close. However, after taking a closer look at Martins type FFSeria and analyzing its characteristics, I noticed that the treatment of the stroke and the structure of the letters shared similarities with Massira. In both fonts the use of sharp broken curves and crispy feel is present. Consequently, I grew confident in project and decided to use Massira as a starting point for the new Arabic companion of FFSeria. Echo, which is Sada in Arabic, is the repetition of a sound caused by the reflection of sound waves from a surface. Accordingly, Sada is the echo of FFSeria. The modifications on Massira consisted of making Sada perform like FFSeria. It had to have the same point size, line space, color, contrast and feel as FFSeria. Concerning the details of Sada and the inclined angle of the vertical strokes, it was derived from the FFSeria Italic. So Sada has the same feel as the Roman but is inspired from the Italic. More on the Sada project. In 2009, Sada was renamed FF Seria and published by FontFont.
  • Another project of Zoghbi involves a type family being developed for newspaper headlines.
  • In 2007, he created a 3-style Phoenician type family called Fniqiya.
  • Alef Pixel Caps Type for Alef Magazine (2008). Done with Huda AbiFares. This is a Latin ornamental type family.
  • Al Rouiya Arabic Type for the Al Rouiah Newspaper in Kuwait, 2008.
  • Bukra display type for Ibn Battuta Mall in Dubai, 2008. This Futura-like typeface saw a variable part added in 2020. Adrien Midzic and Swiss Typefaces aided with the Latin.
  • A corporate font under the heading, Arabic for Univers (2008). Zoghbi: An Arabic corporate typeface for a global shipping and transport company. The Arabic is intended to work with the Latin type Univers. Unfortunately, I can't mention the name of the company nor the design firm I did this Arabic type work for. I was the Arabic type consultant/specialist and associate type designer alongside Leah Hoffmitz. The font will used in all Arabic publications, ads and packaging for the company.
  • Baseet (2009) is a hybrid Neo-Naskh / Modern Kufi geometric typeface. It is a mixture of straight vertical, horizontal and diagonal pen stokes incorporated in-between curved corners and edges. In 2020, Pascal Zoghbi (29LT) and Ben Wittner released the monospaced Arabic / Latin typefaces 29 LT Baseet Variable and 28 LT Zawi Variable.
  • At FontStruct, he made Arapix (2009).
  • UAE Embassy Corporate Type (2010). This is a commissioned Latin typeface based on the same concept as of an Arabic font. Each of the 26 Latin letters has Caps, Initial, Medial and Final shape enabling the letters to connect as in the Arabic script. The drawing of the letters was all done using the Arabic calligraphic bamboo stick and based on the Naskh Calligraphic Style. Opentype help from Erik van Blokland.
  • The Mathaf Corporate Arabic-Latin Font (2011). Mathaf Arab Museum of Modern Art opened its doors to contemporary Arab art lovers in December 2010 in Doha, Qatar.

  • 29LT Azer, done with Ian Party and Wael Morcos: Azer in Arabic means friendly, ready to assist and lend a hand. This multilingual typeface combines simple lines with careful detailing to create a serious but approachable look. The Arabic is a Naskh / Kufi hybrid and retains a balance between calligraphic angular cuts and unadorned construction. The Latin is a humanist sans-serif with crisp cuts based on the broad nip pen calligraphic structure and contemporary outlines. The fonts include Arabic, Farsi, Urdu and Latin variants. Azer won an award at TDC 2014.
  • Pascal Zoghbi revived the 1950s font system by Nasri Khattar called Unified Arabic as UA Neo B and UA Neo B.

[Juan-José Marcos García]

Juan-José Marcos García (b. Salamanca, Spain, 1963) is a professor of classics at the University of Plasencia in Spain. He has developed one of the most complete Unicode fonts named ALPHABETUM Unicode for linguistics and classical languages (classical&medieval Latin, ancient Greek, Etruscan, Oscan, Umbrian, Faliscan, Messapic, Picene, Iberic, Celtiberic, Gothic, Runic, Modern Greek, Cyrillic, Devanagari-based languages, Old&Middle English, Hebrew, Sanskrit, IPA, Ogham, Ugaritic, Old Persian, Old Church Slavonic, Brahmi, Glagolitic, Ogham, ancient Greek Avestan, Kharoshti, Old Norse, Old Icelandic, Old Danish and Old Nordic in general, Bengali, Hindi, Marathi, Phoenician, Cypriot, Linear B with plans for Glagolitic). This font has over 5000 glyphs, and contains most characters that concern classicists (rare symbols, signs for metrics, epigraphical symbols, "Saxon" typeface for Old English, etcetera). A demo font can be downloaded [see also Lucius Hartmann's place]. His Greek font Grammata (2002) is now called Ellenike.

He also created a package of fonts for Latin paleography (medieval handwriting on parchments): Capitalis Elegans, Capitalis Rustica, Capitalis Monumentalis, Antiqua Cursiva Romana, Nova Cursiva Romana (2014), Uncialis, Semiuncialis, Beneventana Minuscula, Visigothica Minuscula, Luxoviensis Minuscula, Insularis Minuscula, Insularis Majuscula, Carolingia Minuscula, Gothica Textura Quadrata, Gothica Textura Prescissa, Gothica Rotunda, Gothica Bastarda, Gothica Cursiva, Bastarda Anglicana (2014) and Humanistica Antiqua. PDF entitled Fonts For Latin Palaeography (2008-2014), in which Marcos gives an enjoyable historic overview.

Alphabetum is not Marcos's only excursion into type design. In 2011, he created two simulation fonts called Sefarad and Al Andalus which imitate Hebrew and Arabic calligraphy, respectively.

Cyrillic OCS (2012) is a pair of Latin fonts that emulate Old Church Slavonic (old Cyrillic).

In 2013, he created Cuneus, a cuneiform simulation typeface.

Paleographic fonts for Greek (2014) has ten fonts designed by Marcos: Angular Uncial, Biblical Uncial, Coptic Uncial, Papyrus Uncial, Round Uncial, Slavonic Uncial, Sloping Uncial, Minuscule IX, Minuscule XI and Minuscule XV. These fonts are representative of the main styles of Greek handwriting used during the Classical World and Middle Ages on papyrus and parchments. There is also a short manual of Greek Paleography (71 pages) which explains the development of Greek handwriting from the fourth century B.C. to the invention of printing with movable type in the middle of the fifteenth A.D. He wrote a text book entitled History of Greek Typography: From the Invention of Printing to the Digital Age (in Spanish; second edition, 2018). See also here and here. [Google] [More]  ⦿

Alter Littera
[José Alberto Mauricio]

Spanish foundry, est. ca. 2009, and on the web since 2012. It is located in Madrid. Alter Littera's fonts and web site are designed and managed by José Alberto Mauricio, who holds a doctorate degree in Economics and Business Administration, and is Associate Professor of Econometrics at the Universidad Complutense de Madrid.

Alter Littera produces and markets opentype fonts reviving some of the most beautiful bookhands from medieval Western manuscripts, as well as some of the finest European and North-American typefaces from the mid-fifteenth through the early-twentieth centuries. The "Bookhand", "Oldtype" and "Initials" font collections cover gothic and/or blackletter letter forms.

The typefaces:

  • Gutenberg (B42-type) A (Johann Gutenberg, Mainz, ca. 1455). Includes the full set of special characters, alternates and ligatures from The 42-line Bible. Under development.
  • Gutenberg (B42-type) B (Johann Gutenberg, Mainz, ca. 1455). Includes the full set of special characters, alternates and ligatures from The 42-line Bible. Published as Gutenberg B in 2012, this is a clean, smooth rendition of the B42-type used by Johann Gutenberg in his famous 42-line Bible. The font includes a comprehensive set of special characters, alternates and ligatures, plus Opentype features, that can be used for typesetting (almost) exactly as in Gutenberg's Bible and later incunabula. He says: The main historical sources used during the font design process were high-resolution scans from several printings of Gutenberg's Bible. Other sources were as follows: Kapr, A.

Spanish typefounder based in Sevilla, who emigrated to Mexico and is thought to be the first Spanish typographer in North America. He created a large number of Gothic, roman and cursive typefaces. He printed mainly religious oeuvres, from about 1560 until about 1571. Cristóbal Henestrosa, who wrote Espinosa. Rescate de una tipografía novohispana (México, Designio, 2005), writes: He worked with Juan Pablos (first printer on the American continent) since 1551 and he began his independent job in 1559, with Maturino Gilberti's Grammatica Maturini and finalized with the second edition of Graduale Dominicale in 1576, the year he died. It is not completely clear that he cut [types], although there is a contract (1550) in which he promises to cut type for Juan Pablos, but he is the second printer in all of America and the first one who preferred roman and cursive type over the gothic.

Antonio Espinosa

Spanish typefounder, engraver and printer from the 18th century, b. 1732, Murcia, d. 1812, Segovia. Unlike Pradell, the craftsman, Antonio Espinosa de los Monteros and Jeronimo Antonio Gil followed academic studies. They specialized in drawing and engraving under Tomas Francisco Prieto, engraver of the Real Casa de la Moneda, from whom they learned the techniques of engraving currencies. Their first task was to complete the matrices of Bernardo Ortiz. Gil and Espinosa began their careers simultaneously but Espinosa veers towards punchcutting. Gil began working for Juan de Santander at the Biblioteca Real until 1778, and was later transferred to the Real Casa de la Moneda de Mexico to become its first engraver, which made Santander lose his best punchcutter.

Espinosa, the printer, had his own foundries---one in Madrid, another in Sevilla and one in Segovia. In Segovia, in 1777, he founded a drawing school. In his writing and font specimen books he explained his desire to imitate the Spanish calligraphic forms and to engrave directly each punch (without using counterpunches). It is Espinosa's italic that was used in the book La conjuracion de Catalina y la guerra de Jugurta (1772, Ibarra, Madrid). He taught at la Real Academia de Bellas Artes de San Fernando, worked at la Casa de la Moneda de Sevilla (since 1772) and la Casa de la Moneda de Segovia (since 1774), and is famous for creating the Ibarra typeface.

Sandra Carrera created an entire typeface system based on the types of Antonio Espinosa de Monteros. Called Pícara (2014) it is a bookish typeface with a knife-cut feel and a sturdy serif.

In 1993, Juan Ignacio Pulido Trullén, Sandra Silvia Baldassarri Santa Lucía, and Francisco José Serón Arbeloa (Universidad de Zaragoza, Spain) co-designed the free typeface family Ibarra, which is based on the type used in La conjuracion de Catalina y la guerra de Jugurta (1772, Ibarra, Madrid).

He leads Tabula, a publishing house dedicated to the spread of culture and gastronomy, and is a speaker on public forums and seminars related to high cuisine. His porcelain designs and his O! Luna, Tabula, and Linneo collections have received international praise and are in many of the best restaurants and hotels in the world.

In 2013 Atelier Iaia published the calligraphic Iturzaeta-inspired typeface Lamia, a joint effort of Santos Bregaña, Julen Cano Linazasor and Maore Sagarzazu: The Lamia font is inspired by the work of the most famous calligrapher of the Basque Country, Jose Francisco de Iturzaeta Eizaguirre (Getaria, 1788-Madrid, 1853). His writing method was compulsory in Spanish schools since 1835. His "unpolished Spanish font" tried to be more effective than the more commercial English version by avoiding embellishments and excessive rear tearing. More akin with the liberal values imported by the French, his offerings sought uniformity, speed and efficiency to ensure that those in the less-favored echelons of society had an effective communication tool. From his "General collection of characters of European Letters" published in Madrid in 1833, we have chosen the "lower case pancilla reformed" represented in one of the prints. We have tried to reinterpret it by keeping its essence but also ensuring that it is viable for potential contemporary uses which, thanks to its good readability and effectiveness in longer texts, basically means as a decorative or display font. The upper case was generated using the lower case as a reference.

Waskonia (2013, Santos Bregaña) is inspired by Basq gravestones from the 8th century.

Earlier work of Santos Bregaña includes the Kai (Basque) typeface family (199701999, with Mikel Enparantza) at Garagefonts.

Biblioteca Real de Madrid
[Juan de Santander]

Libray attached to the Palacio Real de Madrid, Spain. In 1761, thanks to the initiative of Juan de Santander, a foundry is annexed to the Biblioteca Real in Madrid, which he headed at the time. Santander's goal was to create a collection of fonts necessary for the proper functioning of the press in the Biblioteca Real, imitating the model of the Imprimerie Royale in Paris. He decided to manage the whole process in Spain, from the creation of the punches to the final print of the font because of the high cost of importation. Santander requests Geronimo Gil to perform this task and asks the calligrapher and paleographer Palomares to supervise his work. This foundry ended up owning the fonts engraved by Gil as per the request, some types collected by Santander, some ordered from Pradell, and some obtained from the school of engraving of the Universidad de Salamanca.

  • Amaikha (2014). His graduation typeface from the University of Reading.
  • Harri (2016, Type-o-Tones). A display font based on the peculiar letter forms used in signs and fascias all over the Basque Country. The letterforms can be traced back to romanesque inscriptions. Harri (stone, in Basque) is an all-caps typeface, and must be ranked as one of the greatest digital typefaces that capture the Basque soul. In 2020, it was republished at Blancoletters. Later in 2020, Harri Text was added. See also Harri text at Type Network.
  • Ingeo (2021). A 9-style geometric sans that oozes confidence and style, and has a senate seat thanks to its pharaonic lower case g.

  • Tuqbal Pro (2015-2019, by Andreu Balius and Juan Luis Blanco). Tubqal Pro is a tri-script type family based on its previous Tubqal typeface commissioned by the Khatt Foundation as part of the Typographic Matchmaking in the Maghrib 3.0, the 3rd edition of the multi-script typographic research project of the Khatt Foundation. It includes Latin, Arabic (+Farsi) and Tifinagh (for the Tifinagh based languages: Tamazight (Central Atlas), Kabyle, Tamazight (Standard Moroccan), Tachawit, Tachelhit, Tagdal, Tamahaq, Tahaggart, Tamasheq, Tarifit, Tamajaq, Tawallammat, Tamajeq, Tayart, Tumzabt, Zenaga).

Speaker at ATypI 2016 in Warsaw on A Typographic Maghribi Trialogue. In this talk, he explains, together with Laura Meseguer and Krystian Sarkis, the Typographic Matchmaking in the Maghrib project of the Khatt Foundation, which tries to facilitate a cultural trialogue as well as shed a typographic spotlight on the largely ignored region of the Maghreb in terms of writing and design traditions. The specific goal of the collaboration is the research and development of tri-script font families (for Latin, Arabic and Tifinagh) that can communicate harmoniously. [Google] [MyFonts] [More]  ⦿

Carlos Winkow

Carlos Winkow is a version of his original name, Carl Winckow. Winkow (1882-1952) was born in Sömmerda, Germany but worked in Spain from 1909 until 1934 for Richard Gans, in Germany from 1936 until 1939 for Norddeutschen Schriftgiesserei in Berlin, and in Spain again from 1940 onwards at Fundicion Tipografica Nacional in Madrid. His typefaces include

  • Alfrodita (1946). An engraved typeface published by FT Nacional.
  • Alcazar (FT Nacional, 1944). An inline 3d titling font.
  • Astur (1948, FT Nacional). A wooden plank typeface.
  • Belinda (FT Nacional).
  • Cursiva Rusinal (FT Nacional). This is identical to Reporter except in the alternates.
  • Electra (FT Nacional, early 1940s). An almost avant-garde sans family, which includes the ultra thin Estrecha Fina weight. Romeo (Font Bureau) takes some cues from Electra and says that it is a spectacular art deco sanserif with an unusually fine condensed series. See also Casablanca (1997, Steve Jackaman for ITF, now Red Rooster Collection; a revival of Electra Clara) and Carlos (Jason Castle, CastleType). Klingspor dates Electra Fina in 1942.
  • Elzeviriano Ibarra (1931, for Fundicion Tipografica Richard Gans). Lucia Walter revived Winkow's 1931 text typeface Elzeviriano Ibarra in 2011. See also Gans Ibarra (2006, Intellecta Design).
  • Gong (1945, Johannes Wagner; Norddeutschen Schriftgiesserei). A chalk script face. Jaspert mentions the date 1951. A standard non-chalk version of Gong was done by J. Wagner in 1967, and was published as Jowa Script (Jowa Schreibschrift), which in turn provided inspiration for Iova Nova (2007, Ralph M. Unger)
  • Grotesca Radio (Richard Gans Foundry), at least according to some sources. For a revival and reinterpretation, see Radar (2019) by Marta Sanchez Marco for Type-o-Tones.
  • Hispalis (+Cursiva, +Negro, +Titling, +Negro Titling) (1940, FT Nacional).
  • Iberica (FT Nacional, 1942). An open shaded inclined 3d lineale. See Roller (1997, Pat Hickson, ITF and Red Rooster Collection).
  • Nacional (+Cursiva, +Negra) (1941, Nacional). A calligraphic roman in old medieval Spanish style with Clasico Nacional 1 and Clasico Nacional Negro weights. See Madrid (Steve Jackaman, Red Rooster Collection) for a digital revival.
  • Numantina (1940, FT Nacional). Revived by Nick Curtis as Numancia NF (2011, Nicks Fonts).
  • Radar (1940, FT Nacional). a brush script.
  • The brush script typeface Reporter (1938, the Wagner foundry; Norddeutschen Schriftgiesserei). Digital revivals: Reporter No. 2 (Adobe), Reporter 2 (Linotype).
  • Rusinol (1941, FT Nacional).

He teaches Digital Typography at the máster ibérico em design, Oporto (Portugal). He has created a new system for type design called Constructor in collaboration with Marc Antoni Malagarriga I Picas, a programmer. Constructor is a glyph editor based on calligraphic curves, which he presented at TypeTech, ATypI in Brighton in 2007.

He writes: Constructor is a new tool for type design, open source and cross-platform, based on a calligraphic heritage that provides new possibilities. It can be combined with production tools like Fontographer or FontLab, because its finality is to construct outlines extrapolating some instructions or parameters given by the user. It works with only one master and produces different letterforms that can be copied/pasted to a font editor. It will help to design quickly a complete family, so the benefits of this new system for type designers are tremendous. He claims to be inspired in part by Gerrit Noordzij's theory of type design as explained in The stroke of the pen. [Google] [More]  ⦿

Developed in 2012 during a workshop, we read from Ana Carvalho & Ricardo Lafuente (Manufactura Independente) in a piece entitled From Stone to Spaceship, Collaborative type design: The future home of Medialab-Prado, Serrería Belga (Belgian Saw Mill) has its facades decorated with beautiful typography. Taking on the challenge set by Medialab-Prado to liberate these letters from their stone prison and release them to the world, we hosted a three day workshop in Madrid. The premise was to collaboratively design a font, using a fully libre workflow and with no pre-requisites for participation---everyone was invited to join in. We were thrilled to receive this invitation from Medialab-Prado to come to Madrid and work together in a font revival inspired by a building with a rich historical background. The reception to the call was impressive and two days later we closed it having enlisted a total of thirty participants from different backgrounds and coming from different cities in Spain.

At Open Font Library, one can find the free fonts Douar Outline (2011), Sisperdotsize (2014, pixel font), Deuperset (2014, pixel font) and Setperset (2014, pixel font). [Google] [More]  ⦿

Fundicion Tipografica Richard Gans
[Richard Gans]

The Richard Gans Foundry is a defunct Spanish foundry which existed from 1888-1975. Richard Gans was the son of a medic from Karlsbad, Austria. He emigrated to Spain in 1874, and died in 1925. Until 1936 the foundry was led by Mauricio Wiesenthal, but in 1936, his children, Ricardo, Manuel and Amalia Gans Gimeno, now adults, took over. Ricardo and Manuel were assassinated during the Civil War. The foundry was used to make ammunition, and after the war, Amalia Gans and then Reinaldo Leger Tittel started anew in run-down buildings. The foundry operated roughly from 1881-1975. Throughout its existence, types were designed by a number of people from within and outside the foundry. Designers included José Ausejo Matute (d. 1998), Antonio Bilbao (who created Escorial in 1960), the son Ricardo Gans, and Carl Winkow. In the post-war era, Reinaldo Leger and Amalia Garcia Gans made typographic decisions on which types to produce, and acted as typographic directors. Richard Gans' grandson, José Antonio Gans García, is still alive today. Manuel Lage informed me in 2017 that he has inherited the Richard Gans collection.

Six specimen books were published with titles like Fundicion Richard Gans Muestrario Edicion V. The first and second editions, rare books indeed, were published between 1883 and 1903. Editions 3 through 6 appeared in the period 1903-1922. The 1922 edition is here in its entirety (thanks to J.R. Penela). See also here. In 1965, a small catalog was published under the name Tipos Gans. The National Library in Madrid has Muestrario de Richard Gans (Madrid, Richard Gans, 1903, 410 pages) and Catalogo provisional (Madrid, 1950).

On the web, the most complete discussion of Richard Gans is in the PDF file Fundicion Tipografica Richard Gans Historia y Actividad 1888-1975 (2004) by Dimas García Moreno and José Ramón Penela.

Catalog of font names.

Fonts: Until 1925, there were basically no original types. Almost everything in the specimen books of that era is due to German foundries, principally those of Wilhelm Woellmer in Berlin and Edmund Koch in Magdeburg. Some of those typefaces in common with Koch include Grotesca Chupada Redonda, Ronda Universal. Early types in this category also include Escritura Selecta, Escritura Favorita, Escritura Luis XV (it is being digitally revived by Manuel Lage), Gótico Globo (blackletter), Gótico Uncial (blackletter), Nueva Titular Adornada, Tipos de Adorno, Latina Moderna, Grotesca Ancha, Grotesca and Grotesca Chupada. Many, if not most of these, saw the light at the end of the 19th century and survived until 1965.

It is fashionable now to revive all the typefaces. Nick Curtis created a few (see below), and Paulo W (Intellecta Design, Brazil) did many more. Intellecta Designs revivals include Gans Tipo Adorno, Gans Lath Modern, Gans Titular Adornada, Gans Ibarra, Gans Antigua, Gans Antigua Manuscrito, Gans Fulgor, Gans Radio Lumina, Gans Carmem Adornada, Gans Animals, Gans Italiana, and Gans Titania.

The original Gans types can be categorized as follows:

  • Aldine.
  • Anchas Americanas.
  • Antigua El Greco (+Adornada, Cursiva, Negro, Negro Cursiva, Seminegro, Seminegro Cursiva, Titular), aka El Greco Antique. Weights include Antigua El Greco (1924), El Greco Adornado Titular (with Mexican-style sawteeth). Greco was the inspiration for Melina BT (Nick Curtis, 2003). Curtis' Melina Fancy is based on Greco Adornado. For a free version of Adornado, see GrekoDeco (1992, Dave Fabik). Revived as Kifisia Antigua NF in 2005 by Nick Curtis.
  • Antigua. See the digital family Gans Antigua (2006, Paulo W). The Antigua series includes weights like Esbelta, Estrecha, Heraldo, Heraldo Cursiva, I, I Cursiva, I Titular, Mercantil, Negra, Prolongada, Universal, Universal Cursiva, Universal Negra, Universal Negra Cursiva, Universal Negra Estrecha, Universal Seminegra, Veneciana, Veneciana Cursiva, Veneciana Cursiva Fantasia.

  • Antigua Progreso (1923) (+Cursiva, Negra): an interesting serif face. A digital version called Bellini was made by A. Pat Hickson, 1992. Linotype sells Greco (DsgnHaus, 1996) which really is Progreso.

Later in 2021, he designed Graveur (he writes: Graveur is a Renaissance style text face based in the work of the French punchcutter Robert Granjon (1513-1589). Working on original artifacts kept in Museum Plantin-Moretus in Antwerp, observation of his punches, matrices and printed materials resulted in a extense type family that tries to capture the overall style of Granjon rather than simply being a slavish copy of a particular source. Started as my project at Expert Class in Type Design in Antwerp, Graveur has grown to become a typeface with four optical sizes and seven weights, plus italics and an ornaments font. It also has variable font).

[Francisco José Serón Arbeloa]

Ibarra is a free type 1 and truetype font made in 1992-1993 by Juan Ignacio Pulido Trullén, Sandra Silvia Baldassarri Santa Lucía, and Francisco José Serón Arbeloa (Universidad de Zaragoza, Spain) based on characters printed ca. 1770 by Joaquín Ibarra y Marín, the famous Spanish printer who lived from 1725-1785. The types were engraved by engraver Antonio Espinosa de los Monteros (1732-1812). Here they explain how the revival was done. This project more or less tries to preserve the original letterforms with their imperfections. At the official Ibarra site, the typeface is referred as Ibarra Zaragoza. [Google] [More]  ⦿

John Wollring (aka Koeiekat), b. Amsterdam, 1943, d. 2017, was passionate about type design. John worked in marketing communications in advertising agencies and at Philips.

He was very aware of the power of typography in communication. He retired in Extremadura to a remote mountainous region. Small villages with little distraction except the very wild and beautiful nature so plenty of time for him to spend on typography.

John Wollring designed these typefaces:

Examples of his sublime lettering: calligraphy, Cancellaresca, Gotica Bastarda, Romana Antigua, Romantica Humanistica, Rotunda.

Photo. Joaquin Contreras wrote a thesis at the Faculty of Architecture of the University in Chile in 2007 entitled Diseño de fuentes tipográficas, basadas en los libros integramente caligrafiados por Mauricio Amster en Chile. I quote from a talk given by Contreras in 2021: Mauricio Amster Cats is a leading Polish editorial designer who worked for 40 years in Chile as a publisher, potter, lettering artist and teacher. He published two books on graphic standards to support his classes at the school of journalism and design hundreds of books. Son of Jewish parents persecuted by the Nazi regime, as a young man he studied graphic arts in Germany. Together with his friend Mariano Rawicz he travelled to Spain to take part in the civil war. In Madrid he designed newspapers, pamphlets, posters and books, the best known being the Cartilla Escolar Antifascista, a study book for militiamen. As a refugee he travelled to Chile on the Winnipeg, a ship prepared by Pablo Neruda (Chilean poet, diplomat, winner of the Nobel Prize) where he arrived with his wife Adina, a Spanish bookbinder with whom he shared his life. In Chile he started out as an anarchist, but as time went by he became part of Chilean culture until he became probably the most important designer of the last century. [Google] [More]  ⦿

  • EB Garamond (2017). EB Garamond was started in 2011 by Georg Duffner (Austria) as a Google Web font for Latin and Cyrillic. It is named after Egelnoff and Berner. Duffner explains: The source for the letterforms is a scan of a specimen known as the Berner specimen, which, composed in 1592 by Conrad Berner, son-in-law of Christian Egenolff and his successor at the Egenolff print office, shows Garamont's roman and Granjon's italic fonts at different sizes. Hence the name of this project: Egenolff-Berner Garamond. In 2017, Octavio Pardo entered the EB Garamond project. Rhe fonts can now be downloaded from Github. A variable version of EB Garamond is planned.

His typefaces include the free didone typeface Valentina (2012).

In 2016, he published the humanist sans typeface family Mestre, which, in his own words, is a German & Dutch-inspired geometric sans-serif.

In 2017, Pedro graduated from the University of Reading with the multi-script typeface pair Rock (for Latin, Greek and Cyrillic) and Roll (for Latin, Arabic and Japanese).

In 2018, Fontsmith published the mammoth sans family FS Industrie.

Still in 2018, Arilla released FS Neruda at Fontsmith. This transitional storytelling text family is named after Chilean poet Pablo Neruda.

The Lost & Foundry family of fonts was designed in 2018 by Fontsmith's designers Stuart de Rozario and Pedro Arilla together with M&C Saatchi London: FS Berwick FS Cattle, FS Century, FS Charity, FS Marlborough, FS Portland, FS St James. The campaign was developed by Fontsmith, M&C Saatchi London and Line Form Colour. The crumbling typefaces of Soho were recovered to be sold online as a collection of display fonts, to fund the House of St Barnabas's work with London's homeless.

In 2020, Monotype released Bunbury, FS Rosa (a soft serif family influenced by Cooper Black and Windsor), FS Renaissance, a stencil serif typeface by Pedro Arilla and Craig Black.

Riccardo De Franceschi

Italian graduate from the type design program at the University of Reading in 2010, who lives and works in Piedmont and Lombardy in Northern Italy, and publishes typefaces at Sorkin Type. His typefaces:

  • His graduation project included the design of Ginnasio: The Ginnasio family is designed to set bilingual vocabularies, namely polytonic Greek English and Latin English. These dictionaries are used in secondary schools to translate texts from classical Greece and Rome into the student's own language. A Thai font is added, intended to set bilingual vocabularies as well. Ginnasio won First Prize at Granshan 2010 for Greek types.
  • Gravitas One (2011, Sorkin Type, and Google Font Directory). He writes: Gravitas One is modeled on the "UK fat face" which is a kind of very heavy advertising type created during the industrial revolution in England. The letter forms are characterized by an attention getting and strong contrast between the very heavy vertical shapes and the thin horizontal ones. The contrast of the design means that it will be most useful when set from medium to large sizes.
  • Still at Sorkin Type, he created the wedge-serif black typeface Goblin One (2011): Goblin One was inspired by a hand painted sign above a pub in the town of Reading (UK). Goblin One is a somewhat wide medium contrast design with a large x-height.
  • Asset One (2011, Sorkin Type) was inspired by the engraved letters found on United States dollar bills.
  • Contrail One (2011, Sorkin Type; free at Google Font Directory), it is based on handmade sans letters seen on UK posters.
  • Wellfleet (2012, Google Web Fonts and Sorkin Type) is a versatile low-contrast slab serif text typeface with a a bouncy and upbeat feeling. It was inspired by German poster lettering.
  • Emblema One (2012, Google Web Fonts). An oblique fat trendy stencil typeface for posters.
  • Sonsie One (2012, Google Web Fonts). Sonsie One is a large x-height signage face.
  • Vampiro One (2012, Google Web Fonts) is a near-monoline fat angular script typeface .
  • Valnera (2010-2019, CAST). iValnera is a low-contrast humanist serif typeface of a distinctly angular design. Its headline style is called Valnera Monster, and there is also a Random style with randomly rotated glyphs. Riccardo writes: Valnera evokes the calligraphic appeal of Oldrich Menhart's typefaces. It also expresses in a very contemporary way that kind of 1970s photocomposition feeling typical of two iconic faces, Cartier (1967) and ITC Mendoza (1991).
  • Monte Stella (2020, at Dalton Maag): a celebration of Milan's informal aesthetics and accidental design of the 1950s to 1970s. Has a variable font option.

Sandra Carrera

Sandra Carrera (b. 1986), originally from Spain and Switzerland, has a Masters in art direction and type design from ECAL, Lausanne, Switzerland, and holds a BA in Visual Communication from HEAD, Geneva. Her degree project was a typeface called Gandarela typeface, a personal interpretation of of Baroque Spanish types.

Sandra interned at Commercial Type during the summer of 2013, where she worked on Marian Text 1554 and Marian Text 1880. Type designer at Production Type since 2014. In 2014, she made the elegant type system Picara with subfamilies for Text (serifed), Text Sans, Display (modern, fashion mag styles), Stripes and Dual (semi-striped). She writes: Pícara is a bookish typeface family, a tool for graphic designers, which takes its roots into the Spanish 18th type design century, while being a free interpretation of a specimen showing the letters of Antonio Espinosa de los Monteros. Its "cut with a knife" shapes and tight curves, give Pícara a digital and contemporary texture as well as a singular identity, while being readable and functional.

At Production Type, she cooperated on Countach in 2014: Countach, the tough compact sans supercharged with brawn & brains. Developed for The Crew, a critically acclaimed auto racing video game, Countach evokes the muscular and mechanical dynamics of fast cars and urban adventure. . Countach was developed by Superscript2, J.-B. Levée, Sandra Carrera and Irina Smirnova.

Marian Text (2014-2016) is a grand collection of ultra thin typefaces designed at Commercial Type by Miguel Reyes, Sandra Carrera, and Paul Barnes. Marian Text 1554 depicts the old style of Garamond & Granjon; John Baskerville's transitional form becomes Marian Text 1757; the modern of Bodoni, with swash capitals and all, becomes Marian Text 1800, and the early Moderns of the Scottish foundries of Alexander Wilson & Son of Glasgow, and William Miller of Edinburgh, become Marian Text 1812. And like the original, a black letter: Marian Text Black, referencing the forms of Hendrik van den Keere. [Google] [More]  ⦿

Yanko Tsvetkov

Yanko Tsvetkov (b. Bulgaria) is a graphic designer in Valencia. He created the free Old Slavonic / Glagolitic style Cyrillic and Latin typeface Bulgaria Moderna V2 (2012; see also Bulgaria Moderna V2). He explains: The origins of most alphabets are often shrouded in mystery, it is almost impossible to know for sure how, by whom and when it was introduced. The Cyrillic alphabet is no exception. It carries the name of Saint Cyril, a Byzantine missionary send to Moravia by the Empreror with the task to consolidate Byzantine influence against the German clergy. His most frightening weapon was an alphabet, especially customized for the Slavic language---the Glagolitic, which he created himself. Even though The Cyrillic alphabet is named after Cyril, most scolars agree this is a sign of homage instead of acknowledgement of an authorship. The alphabet itself originated in the First Bulgarian Empire, which welcomed Cyril's students after his mission to Moravia failed. From Bulgaria, the alphabet spread to Serbia and later to other Slavic states such as Kievan Rus, the predecessor of the Russian Empire. During the ages, the alphabet got simplified and reformed several times and Russia's influence spread it as far as Mongolia.

He also made Neoglagolitic Alpha (2010), another faux-modern version of the Glagolitic alphabet.

ZE fonts
[Robert Fuster]

Virtual type 1 fonts presented by Robert Fuster (1997-2000, Departament de Matemàtica Aplicada, Universitat Politècnica de València, 46071 València, Spain). "The zd fonts by Constantin Kahn (kahn@math.uni-hannover.de) are virtual T1 encoded Computer Modern fonts based on (OT1) Computer Modern, Times, and Helvetica fonts, intended for simulate dc fonts. (Waine Sullivan's dm fonts are another approach to the substitution of dc fonts by virtual ones.) Because dc fonts are now obsolete, I've adapted the Kahn's package to ec fonts. The resulting virtual fonts are named according to the ec fonts names, changing ec by ze (zerm1000.vf simulates ecrm1000, and so on)." [Google] [More]  ⦿
