"Marian is a collection of revivals. They are neither strict revivals, for the designs are not accurate recreations, nor are they interpretations per se. Instead they reduce the historical models to the basic skeletal forms. Nine serifed faces from the sixteenth to nineteenth century, all considered important designs, have been treated in the same fashion. Together they represent a concept: to recreate the past both for and in the present.'Thieves Like Us' was a collaboration between Commercial Type and designer and artist Dino Sanchez. This temporary showroom exhibited Marian, exploring the possibilities offered by these single stroke forms in a variety of media, including neon, nails and pure light on a mirrored surface."
