I've seen people express their love of typography, but rarely with these production values. Directed, designed and animated by F. Lazzari, Montserrat is a haunting demonstration of a typeface set to the rather unsettling poem by Jorge Luis Borges titled Break of Day, take from his 1923 book titled 'Fervor de Bueno Aires.'
This is a tribute film to the amazing Montserrat typeface, recently designed by Julieta Ulanovsky. A tribute, also, to the Montserrat neighbourhood in Buenos Aires, which inspired the font.
