After one year in Early Access, ABC Marfa has now made it over the finish line and is officially available in our Retail Library!
While stylistically born in the hot metal typesetting period, Marfa was designed in a high-speed era of no time to lose: Its uprights were drawn in under 1,000 hours and its hot-headed Italics in less than half of that. Initially, Marfa was a sturdy, utilitarian typeface of three modest weights known as Gothic No. 6, drawn by Fabian Harb in homage to early American gothic typefaces. It made its first appearances in projects by early adopters like Other Means, Dan Solbach, Folder Studio, Eloise Harris & Nea-Kosma, and NODE. 🙏
