Description
In 2011 the Mota Italic type foundry opened a gallery to showcase type, letters and typography from the Berlin type scene. For the opening show 27 Berlin-based type designers contributed a sample of one of their typefaces. Mota Italic passed on one letter from each typeface to 27 designers and illustrators who then interpreted the letters in their way. My showing contains the capital ›W‹ from Roman Wilhelm’s Subtitle Heavy, emphasizing its stencil characteristic.
