Romulus romein. aka "Radish". 2016

This was a revival project of Jan Van Krimpen’s Romulus done during the TypeMedia program in The Hague.

I found a well printed (though awfully typeset) book with hot metal Romulus and set out to reproduce it digitally as faithfully as possible. My focus was getting inside Van Krimpen’s head and trying to understand his logic of shapes, while also taking into account the translation done by P.H. Rädisch when cutting the original punches.
