Handbills, advertisements, posters and printed matter from the late 18th and early 19th centuries have become icons in the history of graphic design. Ever since the use of hand-cut wooden letters and the handling of (white) space on an analogue printing press, a special aesthetic and great magic has lain over the golden age of display posters. Nowadays, very few of us will ever design and produce posters by hand at the printing table again after graduation, not to mention space issues or loss of materials. As you can see below, I am a big fan of this type of poster. Tired of using countless different fonts and styles of different font families to establish the good old look, I wanted a single variable font that would give me the smell of ink and solvents under my fingernails. I always wondered why there was no such thing, so I made one and got a diploma for it. The result is a wild variable font consisting of various typefaces.
