type specimen using the "Rolit" face.
iv'e managed to work with this font, and it's terrible, every letter screams out for a space of it's own and i can't recommend this face when using a really short headline.
This is mon petit contribution to israeli design students and type
lovers worldwide. iv'e scanned (in high resolution) this vintage type
specimen called "Hebrew Artistic Type" by l.p. toby, circa
it's probably one of the earliest type specimen booklet printed in israel (i may be wrong), and is a stunning artifact to find. it's the ultimate example of creation that comes out of a certain void. unlike the rich tradition of the western/eastern type, there weren't many hebrew types, and there was a great demand.
