The Latest from P22

A Detective Story, A Love Story, A Font

Monday, February 10th, 2014 | 6 comments

P22 Marcel is a new script typeface from P22 in the tradition of the P22 Cezanne and P22 Dearest typefaces. Marcel is available as a basic font or as a Pro font with over 1300 characters packed with OpenType features. Marcel was also chosen as one of the distinguished faces awarded a prize from the TDC typeface competition.

The font Marcel is named in honor of Marcel Heuzé, a Frenchman who was conscripted into labor during World War II. During the months Marcel was in Germany, he wrote letters to his beloved wife and daughters back home in rural France. Marcel's letters contain rare first-person testimony of day-to-day survival within a labor camp, along with the most beautiful expressions of love imaginable. The letters—stained and scarred with censor marks—were the original source documents used by designer Carolyn Porter to create a script font that retains the expressive character of Marcel Heuzé’s original handwriting. Carolyn spent years on the design and taking the project even further, translating the letters she found and eventually contacting the family.

Along with the main Marcel typeface, there are two fonts featuring historical post marks and inspector marks plus a roman titling font designed to accompany the script.

A more comprehensive backstory on the making of this P22 Marcel is featured on our Behance page and is featured on Print Magazine's Daily Heller collumn.

Arabian culture usually does not require a lot of makeup on a woman. However, this is not necessary. Because these ladies have a pleasant appearance and real beauty, presented by nature. Dark-skinned mail order girlfriend skin with a bronze tan is very soft and delicate, silky dark hair falls directly on the shoulders, and a beautiful neck goes well with a delicate figure. But the real treasure is the charming brown eyes of the Arabian mail-order brides, which glow with love and tenderness. Next to such a lady, you will be delighted.
