Cover_Acapulko

Akapulco is Arthur Schwarz’s take on what a copperplate script from the 18th century would look like if being drawn today. This legible and formal script takes inspiration particularly in Charles Snell’s drawings, “believer in simple and effective form.” Taking advantage of the latest digital drawing techniques and possibilities, Akapulco’s drawing flawlessly adapts its curves and strokes to the need of its environment. While copperplate scripts’ drawing comes from a pointed nib pen and thus its contrast system, Akapulco’s offers a solution with a more versatile and digital approach. This careful – though not quiet – script typeface features multitude of strong typographic details such as the terminal of ‘v, w’, ‘sf' and ‘st’ ligatures or even, ‘a, g, d, q’ unconnected strokes. Its moderate angle leads to soft and smooth curves; pleasant to read and delightful to look at.
