Looking at the Taüll typeface, we cannot avoid but think of those medieval copyists who for centuries were the custodians of written knowledge in Christian and medieval Europe. It evokes a time when the world still retained a certain magical spirit and the written culture was only in the hands of a small group of people. Taüll is strongly inspired by the Romanesque architectural works built in the Catalan Pyrenees. More specifically in the pantocrator of the Church of Sant Climent de Taüll - hence its name - a marvel of Catalan Romanesque that was erected in the twelfth century and is a Unesco World Heritage Site, within the set of the Catalan Romanesque Churches of La Vall de Boí. We would not be surprised if they told us that Taüll -the typeface- has been drawn with a wide pen to later fix its forms in stone. It is these medieval forms of sculpted features that result in a modularly drawn letter-like appearance, with oblique axes and courageous curves. Contrary to what one might think, the whole is fresh, friendly and contemporary. It helps that Taüll is exquisitely well finished.
