Journal
By Zuzana Licko

Journal is an uncommon revival. Rather than resurrecting a particular typeface from letterpress specimens, Journal is a revival of the letterpress look itself. The irregularities that appear in letterpress printing are simulated; for example all curves are defined with straight lines. This yields a subtle crudeness that is apparent in laserwriter printouts as well as high resolution typesetting. Journal also evokes the informal qualities of familiar typewriter designs, making it suitable for correspondence.
