About The Tipoteca Series

The Tipoteca Series is a family of three typefaces resurrected from the rich wood type collection of the popular letterpress museum and archive Tipoteca Italiana in Cornuda, Italy. This explosive series marks vol. II of Adobe’s Createfulness campaign, following the digital revival of 1920s graphic elements, symbols and pictograms from a handful of European metal type foundries, including Deberny & Peignot, Nebiolo and Trennert & Sohn.

In the spring of 2019, the design team of p98a.berlin rediscovered Tipoteca’s expressive wood type alphabets from various manufacturers, curated a small selection and made letterpress proofs from the original wooden letters for the purpose of restoring them digitally. Berlin-based type designer Ulrike Rausch carefully redrew the alphabets, expanded the character sets and added stylistic alternates as well as other OpenType features.

Pantelleria

Pantelleria shows off its strong character and burns with passion. Its explosive nature lends Pantelleria an overall sharp and pointed look, complemented by fully round shapes and cut-out counters in pretty much all angles from 0 to 360. Originally released in the 1930s as Etna by Xilografia Meneghello & Belluzzo, a wood type manufacturer based in Porto Legnago near Verona, Italy, the alphabet was merely accompanied by a set of figures. Pantelleria has now grown into a typeface equipped with all necessary punctuation, accents covering all Latin-based alphabets, stylistic alternates including a narrower R, a less-spreading S, and U. If you have something to say, you will get all the attention with Pantelleria.

Filicudi

Filicudi is a two-layer display typeface with roots from Milan. While the weights Solid and Striped are each extraordinary solo artists, the latter marks the more exceptional character—yet they unfold a remarkable relationship as a duo. Filicudi Striped was originally conceived under the less spectacular name “no. 344”, mentioned as part of a larger multi-layered family in a 1930s type specimen catalogue of the Xilografia Milanese. It follows a style that was popular among type foundries in the 1930s all over Europe. Filicudi is ideal for use in large sizes, suited for announcements, advertising, and movie posters. Its remarkable feature is the ability to design banners, with several terminals such as arrows, wedges and semi-circles to chose from.

Flegrei

Flegrei is a geometric expressionist. Constructed from ruler and compass, A and O make a bold statement by simply appearing as triangle and full circle. Flegrei has no enclosed counters, lending all lines of text a black texture and strong contrast between words. Hairlines planted in E, F and H bloom as spots of elegance. Its extended character set includes stylistic alternates, including a Pac-Man-like C, an H with a bold crossbar and a more reasonable, space-saving S. Italians call the @ symbol chiocciola, meaning snail—look at this one and you know why. Let’s be frank, Flegrei is no text typeface, but its charming flat-surfaced appearance cuts a fine line in any title sequence.

Adobe Originals logo

The Adobe Originals program started in 1989 as an in-house type foundry at Adobe, brought together to create original typefaces of exemplary design quality, technical fidelity, and aesthetic longevity.

Today the Type team’s mission is to conduct original research and development for type at Adobe, making sophisticated and even experimental typefaces that explore the possibilities of design and technology. Typefaces released as Adobe Originals — fully-featured families and smaller “Concept” projects alike — are the result of years of work and study, regarded as industry standards for the ambition and quality of their development.
