Note of the author
A rustic black letter from the 1930ies. With stylistic alternates.
The high degree of abstraction of this typeface allows it to appear modern, even though its shapes clearly show an origin from Fraktur and Gothic. The letters present the effect of woodcarving or silhouette cuttings as they are defined exclusively with straight lines and sharp corners. Even in modern times, there is again the demand for “hand carved” fonts and there is hardly anyone who still wants or can write such a type him or herself.
Trotz dem extrem angewandten Brechungsprinzip entsprechen die meisten Buchstabenformen durchaus den heute gewohnten. Nur wenige - vor allem einige Versalien - betonen deutlich ihre Herkunft aus der Fraktur oder Gotisch. Durch den Verzicht auf jegliche Rundungen wird das Schriftbild zu einer stilistischen Einheit mit dekorativer Wirkung. Besonders in Kombination mit kräftigen Illustrationen wirkt die PALMONA sehr ansprechend.
In spite of applying the principle of “breaking-off” to the extreme, most of the letter shapes are quite consistent with the familiar ones of today. Only a few – especially the upper case letters – clearly emphasize their Fraktur or Gothic origin. By doing without any bowls, the typeface becomes a stylistic entity with a decorative effect. PALMONA is especially appealing in combination with bold illustrations.
