Christopher Wool

This typeface is based on the linguistic paintings
of fine artist Christopher Wool.

The touch of an artist can’t be faked or replicated. So... I went right to the source. Carefully cataloging and drawing the stencil letters used in his famous written word paintings, I took what I learned of his stroke and impulsivity to style special characters and missing numarals and letterforms. The result was a full typeset that could be used by Mr Wool for supportive copy and headlines to his works, the logical (wishful!) conclusion of this project.
