Aboukir Typeface

Aboukir

This slab-serif was inspired by the missing metal letters which once adorned Nelson's Monument on Glasgow Green. While the words themselves may be long gone, the beveled shape and holes left behind are what formed the basis for this slab serif. The sample book was designed as a riso-printed zine, and incorporates the stone texture of the monument. The typeface was designed in collaboration with Lucas Liccini.
