About this typeface
Just like the club bouncer that secretly keeps tiny birds as pets, ABC Bingo is rough on the outside and soft on the inside—its edgy exterior contrasts with its sympathetic, rounded inner-contours. The typeface was Johannes Breyer’s first hit in 2011, released while he was still an intern at NORM via a purposefully-developed website. It’s based on a sample published in Rob Roy Kelly’s American Wood Type: 1829–1900, but unlike its source, ABC Bingo’s inner and outer-contours are drawn with polygons, so that it appears smooth at small scale and brutal when large. A second set of monolinear, thin punctuation was added to ABC Bingo in 2012.
