Basie Is About to Come

Some time ago Avoid Red Arrows had a little stencil-workshop that I participated in. I just noticed that you can finally order the 15 different stencils, designed on this occasion on

My contribution to the set was Lepyka—an all lowercase face that is drawn with very few strokes per letter. The stencil is inspired by Herbert Bayer’s universal. The cuttings are designed to work with various pen widths, for different weights. When filled you even get a super black weight. The stencil is rotated by 180° for signs and numbers. All the stencils are produced by laser-cutting in clear acrylic glass.
