    A project by Tânia Raposo & Ellmer Stefan.
    Opuscolo is a gathering of texts on all matters, with a new typographic voice and ready to print for a reading session away from the screen. All text in this issue is set in typefaces by Ellmer Stefan. The ready-to-print pdfs are in A4 format, to be folded into A5.

    The first issue is a wonderful text by Italian philosopher Federico Campagna on the subject of Baroque music. The text was first found on Campagna’s blog.

    The use of different type styles allows different readings of the text. I decided to set the main text in Triptych Roman and Triptych Italick; all titles of musical pieces are set in Triptych Grotesque so I could later easily consult them without having to navigate through the text. Almost as highlighting a playlist.

    You can find a ready-to-print pdf and a screen-reading pdf, together with all the references of the publication on our are.na page.

    As Francesco Fusaro says in the episode of his NTS show Tafelmusik, where Federico Campagna was a guest in: This one is for the Baroque Crew!
