copy maketh man, it can say: i’m young, i’m modern. i’m powerful, i’m rich. text is like textiles. it’s interwoven with our wishes. our choice of font translates and transfigures.  


the location is a planning error; a dead square comes to life; the error turns beautiful. correct type can be wrong. characters may be flawed, lines break, type bleeds. what is wrong is right. 


how can i furnish my text? there’s a handful of convenient and attractive fonts. some were created a long time ago, some only recently. that’s all it takes.
