New type family at ReType
Die sechs Schnitte umfassende Schriftfamilie Barbieri ist die jüngste Font-Veröffentlichung bei Retype, einer unabhängigen Amsterdamer Type Foundry. Erinnert mich stark an den Look von House Industries.
Barbieri is a casual sans type family, based on a German lettering style from the ’60s. The original hand-drawn alphabet was used in a rather peculiar edition of Der Barbier von Bagdad, an opera composed by Peter Cornelius.
As fans of informal typography and popular lettering styles, we thought these few thin letters deserved a re-incarnation as a complete type family. Now Barbieri has 6 weights suitable for packaging, posters, and music covers. It resembles a certain ‚americana‘ spirit, though with a Germanic twist.
