VLNL Bint:Kornelis de Vries, a headmaster from the Dutch province of Friesland, cultivated new potato breeds that he named after pupils in his school. The tasty Bintje (a Frisian girl’s name) became a big success—in Belgium and France it has remained the most popular potato for french fries to this day, more than a century since its introduction.
Donald took 10 kilos of fresh Bintje potatoes and cut the Bint typeface with a short, sharp knife. He then inked each character once and printed it twice; the second, lighter printing is accommodated in the lower case alphabet.
The Bint family also offers a script font whose letters bounce up and down the baseline; with OpenType functionality active, the font random chooses each character from the upper- or lowercase alphabet. “Tabular Lining Figures” will activate a series of negative numerals in boxes; “Discretionary Ligatures” activates specially designed letter combinations like “www” as well as arrows and stars.
