You dont have to be a member of the Beat Generation to appreciate Beatnik a typeface inspired by the writings of Jack Kerouac. Alex has distilled the essence of the Beats unconventionality into a visual context. Beatniks angled serifs, varying x-height and edgy informality all contribute to its sense of extreme self-expression.
Beatnik is as versatile as it is expressive, serviceable in both text and display settings. With a complete set of true small capitals, old style figures and alternate letterforms, it can be used to overlay a Beat sensibility wherever desired.
