Type Love 165: Beckett

I’ve recently discovered A-2 Type, a London-based foundry started by A2/SW/HK, and I loving the selection of typefaces they’ve developed. A few of them are currently now available at MyFonts.

Beckett, 5 Weights. Designed for the Faber & Faber series of book covers: Samuel Beckett Complete Works’, published in 2009/10. This face originates from machine-cut era wood type characterized by a hard edge that creates immediate impact on any surface, print or screen!
