Background

Grimoire combines two seemingly contradicting principles ” calligraphic and constructive ideas ” and makes them work together. The font is based on a modular system but simulates a handwritten typeface. Felix Braden about this concept: “I was so fascinated by this idea, that I have since designed a couple of typefaces following this principle, e.g. the psychedelic Bikini released by Volcanotype. Even my recent work, the multi awarded FF Scuba is inspired by this concept, however with increasing age I have become less interested in experimental typography and more so in designing typefaces which are more versatile in use.”
