Thumbnail for Souvenir Roma

Here in Roma the streets are filled with typographic history. But my interest today is Futuristic artifacts. My first souvenir is a deck of postcards featuring caricatures drawn by Tullio Crali, the Futurist painter whose paintings combine speed, aerial flight, and the mechanics of aerial warfare. These caricatures of F.T. Marinetti were made by Crali to look like they were drawn by many of the leading Futurist artists, rendered in the style of their signature work.

(See the memorial to Dan X. Solo, master type revivalist, on Weekend Daily Heller.)
