These images  were taken from the Mc Kean website and I simply love what the designer has done to recreate the style that is Mc kean art. The way ink has been used you the feeling that collage has been a great influence of the artist. The harsh scribe like scribles have a profound effect on this particular design layout

The Bell

The original Bell, a English neoclassical typeface, was cut in London in 1788 by Richard Austin for a publisher named Bell. Widely used in the USA as an alternative to Baskerville in the begining of the 19th century. Monotype cut a facsimile in 1931.
The Bell is more vertical in axis than Baskerville and its serifs are very sharp

Description –Advertising type

I really like this type face as is a very modern design. it will reach a young audience as “Southpark” uses this type face and there for you have a visual link to a mass audiences. It’s edgy design intrigues me and the use of curves and sraight lines give a curious composition.
