    The Wigrum typeface was born in 2011, while Feed was working with Daniel Canty on the design of his novel, Wigrum. Sebastian Wigrum, a mysterious collector of everyday objects, vanishes from his London flat during the Blitz. He exists on the uncertain boundary between fiction and reality, between past, present and future, from West to East of a re-imagined Europe… The font that bears his name is imbued with a sensitive geometry inspired by the sans serifs of the 1930s and their future brethren, while allowing itself flagrant eccentricities.
