Catacumba Pro - inspired by tomb inscriptions. Fountain and PSY/OPS come together in a special joint release of a new typeface from Portuguese type designer Rui Abreu.
Catacumba Pro is a six-weight typeface inspired by the painted inscriptions of the Igreja de São Francisco church's catacombs in Porto, Portugal. The forms are clearly influenced by Victorian style, with an unmistakable French heritage, and yet they somehow convey a decidedly Portuguese sensibility.
Catacumba's centerpieces are its two titling styles: the exuberant Excelsa, and the Didonesque Moderata. From these two decoratives, four new cuts are derived. These, the Text fonts, are tamer and more understated, but maintain the same artisanal grounding and DNA as the display fonts. Each Catacumba font includes a wide selection of OpenType ranges and features, allowing for extensive use within the Latin range.
Designed by Rui Abreu and mastered by PSY/OPS.
