    Expletive Script was designed by Jonathan Barnbrook and Marcus Leis Allion and released in 2001 by Virus Fonts. It’s a unique blend of threadlike monolinearity, the simplified circular forms of engineers’ stencils, and connected chrome scripts. The only time I’ve ever seen it in use is on Andreas Dorau’s long-awaited seventh album from 2005.

    Both weights are used: Expletive Script Light is not only thinner, but also possesses more pronounced extenders than the Regular. The oscillating lines are created by combining the Regular with the Alternate cuts — in latter, some characters drop below the baseline. This nervous typography is a fitting counterpoint to the disturbing photography of Dorau and his wild boar alter ego.

    The interlinear ligature of Andreas Dorau’s initials resembles the infinity symbol (∞). It is a custom creation and not included in the font.
