Background

Macula can be described as the ‘impossible typeface’, since its design is based on the concept of impossible objects. This optical illusion was explored into great detail in the 1930’s by the Swedish artist Oscar Reutersvärd, and simultaneously made very famous by Dutch artist M.C. Escher.
