    We all know those lists.
    Of all the amazing things people dream of doing before they die.
    But in Brazil,
    What people do before dying are far more ordinary

    100 Coisas Para Fazer no Brasil Antes de Morrer (“100 Things to Do in Brazil Before You Die”) is a collection of one hundred articles about what people were doing just before they were killed. The book was commisioned by newspaper O Estado de São Paulo, short Estado, printed in a limited edition of 100 copies and distributed among journalists and Brazilian authorities.

    This booklet (612 pages, 16×23 cm) was offset printed with only black ink. For the typography we chose Korolev Condensed by Rian Hughes as the main font and Estado as a secondary typeface: the corporate typeface of the newspaper, designed by Mário Feliciano.

    1. An article published by O Estado de São Paulo in March 2010 mentions that Mário Feliciano provided three typeface families for the redesign of the newspaper; “Estado Headline, Estado Fine and Flama”. In a second article, the type designer explains the project and the importance of typefaces for a newspaper. The same typefaces are still used on their website in 2020.

      Shown below are sample of Estado Fine Extrabold and Estado Headline Semibold. These seriffed styles appear to be related (but not identical) to Feliciano Type’s retail family Eudald News. I would assume that the condensed sans serif used in 100 Coisas Para Fazer no Brasil Antes de Morrer (and shown in the sample) is a version of Flama.
