Present Perfect


Tropic is a bespoke typeface created for the publication
Au loin, une île !. The full family includes an original set Tropic 00 and its 4 variations: Tropic N01 and N02 as negative variations, Tropic P01 and P02 as positive ones.

Taking its primary inspiration from letterforms found on holiday postcards from paradisiac islands, the font varies throughout the book: five variations of the typeface leaning towards the centre depending on their positioning within the book. The idyllic and dreamy initial depiction is slowly bent to instil a subtle feeling of anxiety throughout the pages of the catalogue highlighting the paradoxical nature of the island.
