One of my first year BA Graphic Design projects was typeface design project. The brief asked us to revive typefaces that have not been digitalised yet, working on the basis of interesting typography found outside and in old printed materials.
EMIL UND ANNE
This typeface was recreated from metal type found on a gravestone in southern Germany.
