“My latest typeface, Macklin, started as a piece of research into the work of early 19th-century type founder Vincent Figgins. His type specimen, which can be found in the St. Bride’s Library in London, is a thing of beauty — not only for the ground-breaking typefaces that it contains, but also for the layout, the paper, and even the copy. Through the use of interpolation, Macklin integrates a variety of genres (Slab, Scotch, High Contrast, Sans) into a coherent system. All of these styles share a common structure and the spirit of Figgins, though faded, lives on.”
