Maiola and Pill Gothic

Today we take a quick look at Veronika Burian’s Maiola with Christian Robertson’s Pill Gothic.

Maiola-and-Pill-Gothic-1

Maiola-and-Pill-Gothic-2One of the first things you’ll notice about Maiola up close is its rough and expressive texture. At size, this detail becomes hardly anything observable, an interesting proof of concept masterfully carried out all the way. Pill Gothic responds with a more traditional sans construction, but with interesting hard edges included here and there to offer some formal commonality. Together the two take full advantage of the maximum versatility gained through each faces’ extensive range of weights.

Maiola-and-Pill-Gothic-4 Maiola-and-Pill-Gothic-5

Maiola additionally covers Cyrillic and Greek, offering these as separates, or in an all-inclusive Pan-European set. (At least that’s what I assume Maiola PE means.) That’s it. Great Pairs continues here Wednesday.
