Type Gallery – Mezz

Font Designer: Michael Harvey, 1993
Clarinetist Milton “Mezz” Mezzrow (1899–1972) was a remarkable jazz musician, as becomes evident upon reading his autobiography Really the Blues. His sharp tone and serpentine lines inspired English lettering artist and jazz lover Michael Harvey to create a condensed, oblique display typeface with the look of a chiseled alphabet in the musician’s honor. Vertical formats such as book jackets and posters will be invigorated by Mezz as the display face.
Let the outstanding quality of this typeface convince you.
