"Afrikan alphabets can bring out the beauty of type. Some of the writing systems are so intrinsically beautiful that one cannot ignore this and so whatever work they will produce, it will by extension contain the same beauty." - Saki Mafundikwa typegeist.org/article/afrika…

It's now relaunched with 2 articles on African design with Saki Mafundikwa. twitter.com/Typegeist_Worl…

"Lisbeth [by @TypeTogether] has a lot going for it! There is a lot of warmth and character in the bolder weights which blends the calligraphic energy of brush script with the engineered aesthetic of type design." ilovetypography.com/2021/10/14/seb…
Krul by @retypefoundry is "an interpretation of a vernacular calligraphic style synonymous with the traditional bars of Amsterdam. Krul is lithe and energetic with a strong personality, check out that lowercase!" ilovetypography.com/2021/10/14/seb…
