‘Lady René’ typeface by Laura Varsky.
A beautifully crafted, hand-written typeface by Laura Varsky. As if creating the type wasn’t enough, Laura has also produced these illustrations to demonstrate the typeface’s versatility.
For almost 15 years now my work has focused on the design of editorial pieces, predominantly books and CD sleeves. Typography proper has always been central to my research projects. All my obsessions eventually embodied as much the search for a perfect, spotless text as for a daring and provoking one. In my view, “how-to-say-something” ranks highest amongst a graphic designer’s responsibilities.
