Acabáronse las vísperas, y la fiesta de Santa Ana, y quedó Preciosa algo cansada; pero tan celebrada de hermosa, de aguda y de discreta, y de bailadora, que a corrillos se hablaba della en toda la Corte. De allí a quince días volvió a Madrid con otras tres muchachas, con sonajas y con un baile nuevo, todas apercebidas de romances y de cantarcillos alegres, pero todos honestos. Pusiéronse a bailar a la sombra en la calle de Toledo, y de los que las venían siguiendo se hizo luego un gran corro; y en tanto que bailaban.Acabáronse las vísperas, y la fiesta de Santa Ana, y quedó Preciosa algo cansada; pero tan celebrada de hermosa, de aguda y de discreta, y de bailadora, que a corrillos se hablaba della en toda la Corte.

Der Herausgeber versprach, sein Bestes zu tun für den schriftstellerischen Kollegen. Etwas verwunderlich wollt es ihm nun wohl bedünken, als sein Freund ihm gestand, daß das Manuskript von einem Kater, Murr geheißen, herrühre, und dessen Lebensansichten enthalte; das Wort war jedoch gegeben, und da der Eingang der Historie ihm ziemlich gut stilisiert schien, so lief er sofort, mit dem Manuskript in der Tasche.Der Herausgeber versprach, sein Bestes zu tun für den schriftstellerischen Kollegen.

About

Kai Bernau originally designed Lyon Text in 2006 as his degree project for the Type + Media MA program at the Royal Academy of Art (KABK) in The Hague, and later reworked the family for release by Commercial Type. In 2010 the family was expanded to include an elegant display size, further adding to its versatility.

Lyon takes a serious approach to history, working from punchcutter Robert Granjon’s 16th century masterworks, but views it through the lens of up-to-the-minute contemporary type design techniques, perfectly balancing tradition and innovation.

Authors

Commercial Type

Based in New York and London, Commercial Type is a joint venture between Paul Barnes and Christian Schwartz, who have collaborated since 2004 on various typeface projects, most notably the award winning Guardian Egyptian. The company publishes retail fonts developed by Barnes and Schwartz, their staff, and outside collaborators, and also represents the two and their team when they work together on type design projects. Following the redesign of The Guardian, the team headed by Mark Porter, including Barnes and Schwartz, was awarded the coveted Black Pencil by the D&AD. The team was also nominated for the Design Museum’s “Designer of the Year” prize. In September 2006, Barnes and Schwartz were named two of the 40 most influential designers under 40 in Wallpaper*.

Kai Bernau

Kai Bernau (born 1978) Born 1978 in Germany, came to The Hague to finish his studies in 2004. Has not managed to leave. Married to his business partner Susana Carvalho.

Research projects lead us to new starting points for our self-initiated work and for commissioners.
