Zarzuela Poster Ligatures


Zarzuela Poster


Typeface developed for hypothetical rebirth of Zarzuela; an important genre of Spanish folklore. The structure of the typeface is based on the genre’s 17th century origin, becoming a hybrid between a Transitional Roman and a Didone typeface. The high level of detail responds to the genre’s enormous expressive needs, and it was designed mainly for posters (the poster being Zarzuela’s most representative format).
