A family from Marseille

Excursion type family

Excursion is a heterogeneous type family that pays tribute to the city of Marseille. Inspired by inscriptions of all kinds (from the carved ex-votos in Notre-Dame-de-la-Garde’s crypt to handpainted street lettering) Excursion offers an overview of the richness of the city’s typographical landscape.
