“LL Replica was designed on a very strict design grid which was religiously referred to in order to shape the individual characters, resulting in a typeface that has all the features of a classic sans serif font of middle-european descent, but with a genetically modified DNA.”
LL Replica is one of the many great typefaces you can purchase from Lineto. The typeface itself is the handy-work of design studio NORM—Dimitri Bruni and Manuel Krebs. In this beautifully designed specimen booklet they discuss the development process, various problems encountered along they way—using their actual conversation as continuous sample text. If your like me and would love to get your hands on a copy, Lineto requested that I mention it is out of print and can no longer be ordered. If you would like to check it out for yourself, it is currently on display at the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, as part of the Now in Production exhibition.
