Marcin Typewriter

Specimen Sheets / 2017

Marcin Antique and its monospaced companion, Marcin Typewriter, were inspired by late 19th-century French types produced by the Fonderie Gustave Mayeur in Paris. Mário Feliciano has given us a fresh perspective on France’s long tradition of grotesque types. Marcin purposefully shuns mechanical precision and incorporates modulation in contrast, yet doesn’t over-emphasise the quirks of its vintage source material. The result is “modernisme animé”.

Two A4-sized printed pages featuring Mário Feliciano’s, Marcin Typewriter. Printed on Mohawk Superfine in fluorescent red, black and grey. Hole punched to fit in an A4 binder.
