Catalpa wood letterpress poster blue/orange
Catalpa was inspired by wood type, clever diacritics, and peculiarities in large headline text. It’s only fair for it to be turned into true wood type and used in poster creation by Rafael Neder, Rafael Dietzsch, and Cláudio Rocha. Handcrafted and typeset in Catalpa Extrabold, the poster measures 460 x 313 mm (18 x 12 inches) and was printed at Tipografia Matias, Belo Horizonte, Brazil.
