Eksell Alphabet

$55

Description

Eksell Display is a unique typeface from 1962. Olle was a prolific artist who couldn’t resist sketching out whatever ideas came to mind. His work covered a broad range, but this was the only complete typeface. The letters were drawn by hand in Olle’s five square meter studio in Stockholm, six years after he designed the classic Mazetti eyes. We carefully digitized the letters and developed a family of four optical styles, including a stencil version. Have fun with it, we think Olle did.

Environmentally friendly lithographic printing on 200g quality uncoated paper. Printed in Sweden. Art print.

Cardboards included.
