A Love Letter to Amsterdam’s Curly Letter
Spread from The Curly Letter of Amsterdam (De Amsterdamse Krulletter) by Ramiro Espinoza.

The result of a personal research project by Ramiro Espinoza (the designer who runs the Dutch foundry Retype) and photographer/graphic designer Rob Becker, The Curly Letter of Amsterdam (De Amsterdamse Krulletter) is an engaging love letter to the beautifully crafted and fast-disappearing hand painted lettering which can be found on the windows of some of Amsterdam’s oldest bars.
