Tell a Story: Writers' Font
Telling the Story of Portuguese Literature in a Typeface. www.tellastory.pt
To promote “Tell a Story”- a book shop with wheels that sells translated Portuguese books in several languages as a “postcard” of portuguese culture - the country and its most notorious authors, and to encourage tourists to tell a story about Portugal, we created a new typeface based on these portuguese authors' calligraphy to inspire everyone to write like them.
Either to write a novel or a Nobel, a simple note or the diary of a journey. From A to Z you'll find the characters of Fernando Pessoa, José Saramago, José Luís Peixoto, Cardoso Pires and Lobo Antunes all combined together in one new handwriting free font: The Writers' Font. A vowel may have the mild stroke of one author, a consonant might show the strong personality of another, but they are all genuine and pour geniality.
