About Marist

About this typeface


Marist is a warm, reader-friendly font with prominent serifs and wide uppercase proportions that take their time. Its forms are inspired by afternoons spent in archives investigating the long history of the overlooked Old Style, and more specifically, two prominent fonts within that genre: Jenson’s roman and Golden. When French engraver Nicolas Jenson first developed his roman in 15th Century Venice, the highly legible typeface become famous for out performing everything else. In 19th Century London, William Morris then reinterpreted Jenson’s roman for his Golden Type, a celebration of craft aesthetics from the past that questioned society’s reliance on technology. Marist picks up some of Morris and Jenson’s threads—fine tuning their forms for contemporary eyes and digital libraries.
