Varietta

Designed by Alejandro Paul, Varietta is a retro font family. This typeface has one hundred and nine styles and was published by Sudtipos.

Varietta is the result of my fascination with photographing the type designs of some marquees in Spanish markets. In them you can see many letter designs with reversed contrast and in different widths, probably based on the possibilities of photocomposition. At the same time I was working on the expansion of the Hastile typeface designed by Alessandro Butti for the Nebiolo foundry in Italy in the late 1930s, of which I had not seen any digitization.
As I am not a fan of perfect revivals, I thought it could be interesting to connect Spain and Italy in a single typeface.
The first step was to expand Butti’s design to 27 styles, ranging from thin condensed to black expanded.
To look for the Spanish connection and its characteristic inverse contrast I took advantage of the current technology that allows variable typefaces with many axes. From this, three scenarios of horizontal contrast were incorporated (top, bottom and mixed) which allows infinite possibilities of use. The final result is a collection of 108 static typefaces or a single variable file.
