About Mauritius
Mauritius is a retooling and reconsideration of Georg Trump’s last design. The only impressions left of the metal type, the sole records remaining of this design, show substantial problems. Some can be attributed to technological limitations, but some issues in colour, precision and fitting are also quite apparent, particularly in Mauritius Kursiv, the italic metal cut. This font family is the result of obsessing over a great designer's final type design effort, and trying to understand the reasons behind its vanishing from typography's collective mind. While that understanding remains for the most part elusive, the work done on these fonts produced very concrete results.
