Karloff is a new new typeface that endeavors to explore the line between ugliness and beauty. Click here to visit the Typotheque website for more information or to order.

Karloff, the result of this project, connects the high contrast Modern type of Bodoni and Didot with the monstrous Italians. The difference between the attractive and repulsive forms lies in a single design parameter, the contrast between the thick and the thin.
