Description

Meursault is a graceful headline typeface based on a popular 20th-century style, but with a few quirky twists. It’s a typeface that echoes a design used widely in the early 20th century, born from the burgeoning Arts and Crafts movement.
Meursault was originally designed for The Gourmand, and is intended as a display typeface for use in headlines and subheadings in magazines and newspapers.
