Jant Typeface

A digitally reproduced typeface based on teaching children the process of writing independent figures of the alphabet.

Developed originally by Swiss typographer, type, graphic and book designer Jan Tschihold in 1932 but never realised as a product, its renewed interpretation through reproduction, or by digitisation (as a usable type), engages with a form of knowledge transfer where production is inflicted by pastoral intention.

The accompanying placards utilised a text by the English artist Tom Benson based upon his monochromatic paintings which are constructed from aluminum cuboid sheets and offset printing inks.
