Garamond Corpvs is a typographical set of posters created by swedish illustrator and typographer Björn Johansson as an in-depth pseudo-scientific research about the shapes of our latin letters. The project is based on Geoffroy Tory’s book Champ Fleury from 1529.
Geoffroy Tory was a true renaissance scholar of his time, apart from being a skilled typographer that made controversial comparisons with typography and the human body, he was also a teacher to Claude Garamond, the originator of the Garamond typeface.
