Type Love 174: Marian

Even though it’s only January, I would venture a guess that Marian will be at the very top of my Favorite fonts of 2011 list a year from now. Designed by Paul Barnes and distributed by Commercial Type, Marian “imagines the classics of the typographic canon reinvented for the contemporary world: Garamond, Granjon, van den Keere, Kiš, Fleischmann, Fournier, Baskerville, Bodoni and Austin restyled and revived.” I cannot wait to get my hands on this one.
