Exposit is a reinterpretation of Joseph A. David’s “Plaque Découpée Universelle”, a stencil originally designed in 1876, which could be used to draw all letters, numbers, symbols and punctuation on the basis of its grid.
Developed on a likewise system, Exposit encourages to take affect on the expression of its letterforms—which can be uniform and calm, but also irregular and turbulent. The interplay of vertical stroke lengths (“Amplitude”), condensed and extended letters (“Widths”) and the expansion of rounded shapes (“Stretch”) define Exposit’s changing characteristics.
With a comprehensive set of ligatures and OpenType features the typeface is available in Light, Regular, Medium, Bold and Black as well as contrasted (Positive) and inverted (Negative) styles in Regular, Medium and Bold.
