Archeology and Invention: Designing Empirica • Design writing that digs deep, bordering on obsession, is a delight to read. Empirica is a typeface designed by Tobias Frere-Jones and Nina Stössinger that pays homage to the Roman Empire which, curiously, did not produce any lowercase letters.
I love that Empirica feels authoritative, stone-etched and clearly like a modern interpretation. The product print specimen is lovely too.
