Macula: The Impossible Typeface by Jacques Le Bailly

Published Feb 4, 2013

Inspired by the Penrose triangle, Dutch type designer Jacques Le Bailly, aka Baron von Fonthausen, created this unique typeface where every letter is an optical illusion.

“Some letters were easy to construct, others were far more complex. Often the simple letters were the most difficult, because they offered very few possibilities or starting points. I wanted to avoid designing artificial shapes as much as possible. To keep the typeface lively every single character, down to the punctuation and floating accents, needed to have two versions, as if looked at from two different viewpoints. Sometimes the first version came together very quickly, and then it took an eternity to find a good second one.”
