Merlo

Table of Contents:

Merlo is a historical revival, an interpretation of the types of Ismael Merlo shown in Muestras de los punzones y matrices de letra que se funde en el obrador de la Imprenta Real, Madrid, 1799. Having a Spanish flavour with french influences, Merlo is a true revival adapting to the current technology. Formerly being a typeface that was only available in a technology that is now obsolete. Conceived as a book face, it consists of roman and italic, both with osf and lining figures (text and table) as well as small caps. Merlo was selected as one of the 'Our favorite fonts of 2004', (a selection of favorites promoted by the Typographica website).
