Catacumba is a six-weight typeface inspired by the painted inscriptions of the Igreja de São Francisco church’s catacombs in Porto, Portugal. The forms are clearly influenced by Victorian style, with an unmistakable French heritage, and yet they somehow convey a decidedly Portuguese sensibility.
Catacumba’s centerpieces are its two titling styles: the exuberant Excelsa, and the didonesque Moderata. From these two decoratives, four new cuts are derived. These, the Text fonts, are tamer and more understated, but maintain the same artisanal grounding and DNA as the display fonts. Each Catacumba font includes an expanded selection of OpenType ranges and features, allowing for extensive use within the Latin range.
Catacumba was produced and mastered by PSY/OPS throughout 2008-9, and is a joint release by Fountain and PSY/OPS Type Foundry.
