A biform typeface in seven styles; Brass, outlined and decorated with eight-spoked stars, in three weights (or levels of stroke width) plus a solid Filled style, and the undecorated Brass Plain (shown) in three weights.
Brass is linked to various references coming both from graphic design history and practice. The typeface’s stroke, for example, is influenced by experiments done with Adobe Illustrator’s brushes. Brass is also related to the golden age of photocomposition and dry transfer lettering. The typeface’s name, and its mood, derive from the eccentric and anti-minimalistic title lettering frequently adopted by the Italian film director Tinto Brass. [Fantasia Type]
