Bilbao AMA Font


Bilbao AMA is a lovely and rather severe stencil font consisting of thin geometrical rectangles and gentle 90 degree curves. Modular, de/constructed, fonts like this were fairly common in Avant Garde art publications from this time, but it was surprising to see one pop up in a political publication.

This font looks like it might have been created on a composing tray, built up by putting together smaller pieces of cast metal type. This came from the inner pages of the Bilbao AMA magazine–Mujeres: Organo del Comité Mujeres Contra la Guerra Imperialista y el Fascismo.
