Vaporetta is my first adventure in type design. The inspiration and drive for this project comes, on one hand, from the desire to explore the anatomy of old style typefaces, as one of the oldest forms of printed letters. On the other, the caligraphic nature of such a type style pushed me to individualise it further, by adding traces and ornaments refering to its hand-made origins.
This typeface exists in a regular weight and in italic, and is best used for display purposes. Vaporetta isn't commercially available at this point.
