Pestifero is a contemporary humanist serif typeface. Inspired by the nostalgic search for beauty in a post-pandemic world, Pestifero’s aesthetics link different times in history that were afflicted with similar troubles.
The idea started from a book, Informatione del pestifero et contagioso morbo printed in 1576, and the shapes are also influenced by the Renaissance works of different masters. Pestifero is not a historical documentation of type, but a contemporary font that freely follows the aesthetic values of classical typography, produced under a modern-day gaze.
