Type writing Marcin typewriter is the monospaced version of Marcin Antique, our contemporary interpretation of late nineteenth century’s French types produced by the Fonderie Gustave Mayeur in Paris. Instead of emphasising the more mechanical and technical aspects often associated with monospaced fonts, Marcin Typewriter takes its cue from Marcin Antique’s contrast and tone, and merely adapts them to the restrictions of monospaced typefaces. The resulting face looks neither too nostalgic nor too ‘tech’. Marcin Typewriter is suitable for a wide variety of uses and reads frictionlessly. It comes in six weights with matching italics. Except for the two lighter weights that were suppressed, those weights correspond with the weights in Marcin Antique. The OpenType fonts include Latin Extended character sets, all the different styles of numerals, and—just like in Marcin Antique—alternate glyphs subtly alter the feel of the typeface. Stylistic Set 1 removes the tail from the ‘a’ and turns the double-storey ‘g’ into a single-storey design; and Stylistic Set 2 straightens the leg of the Helvetica-like ‘R’ into a Franklin Gothic-style variant. Mirroring Marcin Antique, the italics are also slanted romans; their slope is greater than usual, making them stand out in a text. They are drawn lighter than their roman counterparts to compensate for the increase in colour of the sloped forms.
