FF Tisa and Pilcrow

FF-Tisa-and-Pilcrow-1

Bringing us a type palette with a subtle bounce today is the pairing of a long-held personal favorite, Mitja Miklavčič’s FF Tisa, and Satya Rajpurohit’s recently released Pilcrow. Though Satya’s work through his own Indian Type Foundry focuses mainly on Indic scripts such as Devanagari, Tamil, or Gurmukhi, his latest release demonstrates a developed understanding of the Latin alphabet, and a new perspective at the intersection of geometric and industrial gothic.

FF-Tisa-and-Pilcrow-4

Pilcrow offers enough structural reinforcement to complement well FF Tisa’s casual demeanor. Unifying the two is Pilcrow’s own playful take on what would otherwise be featureless curves and joins. This is particularly evident in the heavier weights of the blunted variant, Pilcrow Soft.

FF-Tisa-and-Pilcrow-5

As Tisa progresses in weight, the face advances from a relatively narrow fit to a comfortably wide stance.

FF-Tisa-and-Pilcrow-2 FF-Tisa-and-Pilcrow-3

That’s all. Catch Great Pairs here each Wednesday.

Whirligig / Big Cheese

This post is part of a daily series that adds one ornament per day to our blog, up till today.

ornaments-31

It’s been a great year. Happy new year.

By repeating and rotating relatively small elements Zuzana Licko created fascinating ornaments that look like you are viewing the world through a caleidoscope. Combine them into majestic decorative tapestries. The central icon comes from Big Cheese, a unique collection of clip art with implied levels of meaning but no real meaning – hopefully through usage the dingbats will start to have a meaning.

The Ornament Series was produced collaboratively by David Sudweeks and Yves Peters.

Baskerville Original

This post is part of a daily series that adds one ornament per day to our blog, up till the new year.

As far as we know, Baskerville never used ornaments, though as is noted in the introduction to Frantisek Storm’s Baskerville Original, his bookbinder did.

Caravan

This post is part of a daily series that adds one ornament per day to our blog, up till the new year.

ornaments-27a

During this series, we’ve leaned pretty heavily on William Addison Dwiggins, a self-named “black-and-white-smith.” Though he had a firm grasp on color theory, this one’s color palette is dedicated specifically to him, and what he could do with just black and white. The typeface is his own Caravan.

The Ornament Series is produced collaboratively by David Sudweeks and Yves Peters.
