Maiola in use in David Walsh’s A bone of fact

September 2018

Maiola was used as the main typeface in David Walsh’s memoir, A bone of fact.



The Australian multimillionaire, David Walsh, ’professional gambler, art collector, and businessman’, is the owner of the Museum of Old and New Art (MONA) published his memoirs A bone of fact. Maiola accompanies his thoughts in titles, menus, and text.

Inspired by early Czech type design, Veronika Burian’s Maiola is a contemporary typeface that is mindful of its heritage. Maiola creates a welcoming tension on the page by implementing oldstyle features and calligraphic reminiscences such as a humanist axis, modest contrast, and pen-formed terminals. Maiola covers the Latin A character set with a broad set of OpenType features, which is also included in Maiola Cyrillic, and Maiola Greek covers polytonic Greek languages.
