Macula can be described as the ‘impossible typeface’ for its design is based on the concept of impossible objects. This optical illusion was extensively explored in the 1930’s by Swedish artist Oscar Reutersvärd, and simultaneously made very famous by Dutch artist M.C. Escher.
Macula is available in five styles: some are ready to be use just by themselves while some are specifically meant for use in layers. By stacking different styles of Macula on top of each other, beautiful multi-coloured typography becomes possible.
Every character in Macula has been designed in two variants. To enhance typographic liveliness, these two versions are automatically alternated by OpenType features. In addition, stylistic alternates for ‘A’, ‘E’, ‘N’ and ‘O’, and their accented relatives are included. This will probably please all you hipsters out there. ;)
