Dekal is a revival typeface of Blackline, designed initially by Wolf Magin in 1969. The contrast between thick and thin parallel lines creates a unique visual identity familiar in the dry transfer era of the late 1960s and early 1970s. In this digital interpretation, lines and spacing are more expansive to help construct lowercase characters and improve screen rendering. Without question, it is great for apparel, books, and posters.
The font includes over 500 characters per style with three interchangeable line styles. OpenType features consist of lining and tabular figures, fractions, standard ligatures, and thirteen stylistic sets. Language support covers Western, Southern, and Central Europe.
