Font Designer – Gabriel Martínez Meave

Designer Gabriel Martínez Meave created Arcana™ in 2003.
Arcana Manuscript is a calligraphic exploration of the Victorian gothic aesthetic that created literary classics such as Frankenstein and Dracula. Gabriel Martínez Meave first wrote with a fountain pen, then digitized the results to create this unique typeface. “Arcana” takes its name from the ultimate secrets that lie behind astrology, alchemy, and magic. In gothic novels, such secrets were written in forbidden books, hidden in the dark and grotesque sanctums of magicians or mad scientists (possibly the ancestors of today’s computer scientists and type designers).
The Know How section offers detailed background knowledge to deal with all enquiries about the use of fonts.
