i.3. Taller, typeface


—Typography, publication

            Taller draws its inspiration from the hand-carved merchant signs in Celtic Feasts in Galicia, Spain. These signs, along with manuscripts showcasing uncial script dating back to 1500’s Northern Spain, guided the look for the letterforms of Taller.
            The capitals, slightly pointed, exude an organic quality typical of Celtic typefaces characterized by large counterforms and broad stroke intersections. The lowercase letters are influenced from the prominent features of Iberian scripts, showcasing a "Northern treatment" with sloping hairlines at the top of ascenders and the base of descenders.
