"a typeface is a character.
with the genes of its parents, on a course along given conditions"
Deriving from a letter’s point of view, APPEARANCE / being is a speculative series of typographic experiments by graphic designer Maarten van Maanen.
Taking an a-semantic foundation, and accordingly merging text, illustration, sign-language, and more, these fonts give an alternative sound to the determined character of design. This type specimen uses a variety of thoughts, quotes, and ideas from otherwise-minded writers and thinkers as its body of text.
