If you can’t read it, take a few steps back! A marvel of optical effects, Pleinair imagines what the Impressionist painters of the late-nineteenth century might produce as type designers in the twenty-first. Up close its ‘daubs’ appear chaotic and illegible, but at a distance its shapes resolve into elegant and readable italic letters, like the wondrous brushstrokes of Claude Monet or Georges Seurat.
