2011 Typography Annual
"Brownstone was created by Argentine type designer Alejandro Paul. It is an original 21st-century design, yet one subtly infused with historical and cultural references—influences include the decorative typefaces of 19th-century foundries and the ornate iron railings of Park Slope's row houses. Influences aside, Brownstone has broad modern appeal This soft, monoline sans serif marries highly legible, draftsman-like letterforms with decorative swashes and ornaments reflecting the old-meets-new aesthetic of the DIY craft culture seen in Brooklyn and other urban centers. It's ornamental but unfussy, romantic but understated—a design theme well-suited to recession-era cynicism."
