Plakat is a fully functional and practical typeface based on Polish movie poster lettering from the 60s, 70s and 80s. It features a full character set including Polish letters and two full sets of alternate characters for lowercase letters. It can be used for display but is perfectly comfortable as large body copy as well!
Poland has a very rich poster art culture and one of the clearest juxtapositions between theirs and popular western culture could be seen in movie posters released in communist times for western movies. They have come to symbolize the tension of the era and feature a very wide variety of great examples of distinctively Polish hand lettering.
Comparing the type treatment to that of their western equivalents helped me isolate and identify various visual cues and incorporate them in my typeface.
