Born in Argentina in 1932, Guillermo Mordillo was one of the most widely published cartoonists of the 1970s. In 1969, he was awarded the Silver Medal at the V International Biennale of humorous designs at Tolentino, and in 1977 he won Best Cartoonist of the year at the Salon International de l’Humour in Montreal. In the years between, the Insel Verlag in Germany published two paperbacks with cartoons featuring giraffes. The cover typography uses the Shadow Italic style of Churchward Marianna. Joseph Churchward’s obese letterforms are a perfect fit for Mordillo’s chunky, bulbous-nosed characters. I only wish Marianna would have been spaced tighter. It looks better with touching letters.
