Absent Grotesque: A Manual
The Subtle Destruction of Beloved Standards: A Manual.
Thank you for your moment in viewing these typefaces. Univers and the Bauer of the Helveticas - taken by all the same - the very gesture is what we now offer. Replication aside, we retain all first mistakes to allow this observation. Sweep away the dust of 1896 to refine and unify, and we are whence. Absent became Grotesque!
A title sans unified with an arm span a century long. Absent Grotesque, and HLLVTKA, and something originated in 1957. We put these contemporary versions through a test - three dimensions of truth - Light, Medium and Bold.
In 2007 Michael Cina found four individuals, Eric Carlson, Matt Desmond, Maddy Nye, Travis Stearns with sound abilities in imperfection for the YouWorkForThem type foundry. The design of "a model sans serif" typeface releases all that associate with rigid standards of life. Adding some new members, the fonts were tested in Berlin, to closely view the idiosyncrasies contributed through time by all. Inspiration was taken from any character set, but nature gave us this - a perfect realist sans-serif with a deep and inconsistent breath.
What we hide is to be widely used. Absent Grotesque corners a moment of perfection and folly. Mistakes. We encourage your participation.
