Die Romantik started out as a hand-made experiemntal typeface. It was inspired by dark, aggressive forms, B-grade horror movies, and tragic love. The typeface is created using five different strategies: tool-based making, collage, stenciling, found imagery, and hand-drawing. The final book is both a type specimin book and a documentation of process, containg sketches, iterations, and inspiration and source materials.
