Graphic designer John Morgan launches type foundry and art platform, Abyme.
Graphic designer John Morgan (Art Review) and typographer Adrien Vasquez have launched Abyme, a new digital type foundry and online art store.
Two typefaces are available including English Egyptian, an interpretation of William Caslon’s Two Lines English Egyptian from 1816, “arguably the first sans serif printing type to be sold commercially”. The other is Nizioleti, a face named after stencil-painted Venetian street signs, and originally conceived for an identity for the 13th Venice Architecture Biennale. Another typeface, Berthe, will be available from 2018.
