Josef K Paneuropean

Josef K Paneuropean is a contemporary typeface that is inspired by the writing style of the famous writer Franz Kafka. It is the second font by Julia Sysmäläinen that is inspired by this classic author after FF Mister K font. This time the inspiration comes from perhaps the most famous novel of Kafka – The Trial and its main character – Josef K. This character reminds us of the writer himself – a high ranking bank clerk living in a world almost engulfed by bureaucracy with its faceless and nameless servants.

First thought that springs to mind when we look at the Josef K Paneuropean typeface is about the enormous amount of research Julia Sysmäläinen did on Kafka’s handwriting allowing her to reproduce its peculiar calligraphic features. Then, we cannot but think about the masterful way she used the broad nib ink pen in order to realize her great idea. As a result, Josef K Paneuropean script is a perfect reflection of Kafka and his world. Its appearance is a reminiscent of a bureaucrat who is at a high place in the hierarchy – a self confident and quite solid man with a clear and neat handwriting. And if you ask yourself why the script is called Paneuropean, perhaps the 2500 glyphs and Western and Central European as well as the Extended Cyrillic character sets will explain that fact.

Josef K Paneuropean font is yet another gem created by Julia Sysmäläinen and another proof of her enormous many-sided talent. Follow the links to check out more of her formidable projects:
