Tasso Two is a new typeface, inspired by and redrawn from my revival of a face originally found in an Barnhardt Brothers & Spindler specimen dated 1891. I updated and modernized the shapes while retaining many of the quirky Nouveau-esque aspects.
In Tasso Two, I pivoted the intention of the face and decided to do an “inspired by” as opposed to a revival, which allowed me to straighten out and modernize some of the wackier characters. I redrew the whole face, added the missing characters and added in 3 more weights. All are kerned and programed with ligatures and alternates.
Tasso Two is a geometric sans serif face with Art Nouveau-esque quirks, for use in text and display. Inspired by a face originally drawn in the 1890s, Tasso Two balances contemporary ideals with turn-of the-century eccentricities to create a unique impression.
