Michael Gills developed this new text family under the direction of Type Director, Colin Brignall. Figural is based on the original 1940 design by Oldrich Menhart, the famous Czechoslovakian calligrapher, type designer and typographer. All of the the original characteristics have been carefully retained in this marvellous, distinguished family of typefaces. Whether used in short pieces of advertising text or in larger pieces such as magazines or books, Figural's legibility guarantees success. A choice of three weights, a delightful angular italic and a set of small capitals of classical roman proportions are available.
