Karloff Negative in use: Obraztsov Theatre

A collection of opposites at the puppet theatre

May 18, 2023

In the spring of 2021, Obraztsov Puppet Theatre decided to put its identity aside and printed a black-and-white playbill and a black-and-white season programme booklet. The booklet titles and calendar grid of the bill are set in Karloff Negative by Typotheque.

Karloff  is a collection of irreconcilable differences consisting of Didone serif Positive, eccentric ‘Italian’ reversed-contrast Negative, and the result of their mating, Neutral. Typotheque that designed Karloff are also authors of Brioni and Parmigiano typefaces from type.today’s library.
