Known sometimes as "utopia”, "journey” other times, but also named with name´s place where one wants to go, "Ithaca” home of Ulysses.
Typographic Cartesian coordinates are usually two, from the skeleton, the narrower, to the black, the widest. Nowadays, Maese Patau had traveled a road made by four Cartesian axes of typographic geography. A road from thick to thin, from expanded to condensed, to offer us a new family, a larger and extensive series than the traditional family. 48 "relatives” in a pure neo-grotesque font, with a large "eye” that makes it especially suitable for display. Solid hinting in small sizes due to it´s pure and simple basic forms.
The jazzy cursive, available in all weights, looks as a simply slanted letter, but when works in conjunction with its regular version, generates an outstanding typographic game.
As usual, Maese Patau offer us a extensive typeface in weights, extensive on supported languages, and all kind of OpenType´s capabilities.
