Typographic airings

Soupirs is an ornamental stencil font family designed by Fanny Garcia & Jack Usine. These have been redesigned from existing decorative soupiraux* found in the streets of the city of Bordeaux. From 1.489 pieces originally collected, 310 were chosen to compose Soupirs. This collection is an eclectic mix of fascinating vernacular forms.

*soupirail/soupiraux: an opening in the bottom section of a ground-floor exterior wall, for ventilating and lighting cellars and basement rooms.
