Mister K Splendid
by Julia Sysmäläinen
In his diaries Franz Kafka’s contemporaries live on in detailed characterizations, often spiced with irony: “… two friends, one of them blond, resembling Richard Strauss, smiling, reserved, clever; the other dark, correctly dressed, well mannered yet firm, too dainty, lisped; both of them gourmets, kept drinking wine, coffee, beer, brandy, smoked incessantly, one poured for the other …” 

These two young men – Franz Kafka met them in summer 1914 – and Kafka’s unique handwritten diary notes were inspiration and source for the typeface pair FF Mister K Splendid & FF Mister K Splendid Light.
It’s the positive features combined with little faults and exaggerations that make the friends in Kafka’s diary and also the Splendid typeface duo so sympathetic: a splendid “semiperfect” pair.
