Typeface in use:
»Kafka« designed by Julia Bausenhardt.
»Kafka« is based on the handwriting of author Franz Kafka and captures his
expressive handwriting style, using the manuscript of »The Trial« and
his diaries as the primary reference. The font presents the elegance
and nervousness with which he wrote his letters and book manuscripts.
To resemble naturalistic writing and remain as authentic and irregular as possible (without becoming impossible to read), a great number of extended ligatures was added. As an extra, several drawings from Kafka‘s diaries are included. A full international character set is featured.
»Chandler 42« designed by Steve Mehallo.
»Chandler 42« was one of the first messy typewriter fonts to hit the market,
Chandler 42 was compiled with forensic care from the voluminous output
of a circa 1942 portable.
All the eccentric personality of this particular machine is intact: a slightly angled “m,” filled in gaps in the most-used characters; even the number “4” is reminiscent of gasoline pump numbers of its day.
