The Incise Capital

The work of hammer and chisel sculpting the surface, carving the hardness of marble, limestone and granite, is reflected in Infini’s aesthetic position, which pays tribute to the figure of the incised letter, with its unequal proportions and concave shapes, stripped of the serifs so emblematic of imperial Rome’s monumental inscriptions.

The absence of serifs is made up for by flaring ends, which anchor the characters and enhance their solidity. If this assertive silhouette seems hewn with an HACHE, the incision only adds to its warmth, effecting a decisive turning-point in the tale of capitals.
