Font Designer Recife Releases Misprinted Type 4.0

One of of Recife’s new fonts, “Hand-Made.”

Brazilian font designer and collage artist Eduardo Recife, famous for freely giving away some of the most beautiful fonts ever made, has just released a new version of Misprinted Type. The completely-redesigned site features 7 new fonts, 4 new drawings, 17 new collage illustrations and new original art in the web store.

Recife’s legendary font “Nars”

I’ve been following Recife’s site ever since version 2.0. His fonts are probably what got me interested in typography in the first place. I have to say that while some may consider Recife’s grunge-antique collage aesthetic “played out,” I don’t care. Looking at his work, I feel like it comes from a very genuine place. His style still gets to me every time – no matter how many shitty emo bands use it. Here’s to more Recife fonts in the years to come!

    Regardless of its ostensible overexposure Recife’s typographical art is amazing. Thanks for the heads up on new work from him (I am a typography nerd even if I don’t really get much of a chance to put it to good use).

    I’m gonna use it right NOW! When you see it in places that make you hemorrhage and choke on your own tongue, if you’re still sore from this years from now, I’ll be waiting.

    Beautiful type…I wish I had something to use it for!

    Also, I got my copy of the magazine, and I have to say it is PERFECT. Every page just as beautiful as the one before…

    THANK YOU. Mere words cannot express my gratitude.

    I stumbled upon this some years ago. I guess it was then something like version three or two going back then.
    It fell somewhere in back of my mind then after initial rush “HOW COOL IS THAT” passed, but now you have reminded me and I think I will use it for something. One for the old times.

    it’s an embarrassment of riches, it is!

    Oh, snap. You just reminded me that I don’t have any of these fonts on my new computer yet. Thanks like crazy; I’m going to get on that right now.

    I’m loving the fonts too! (Esp Recife),
    freshly inspired by my recent score a $3 Royal Portable Typewriter from the 70’s, fonty fabulous.
    Rather than Ernest Hemingway (typing away whilst standing with his royal) I’m thinking more William Burroughs, with lots of frantic cutting and pasting to go with.
