ONION was inspired by an unidentified font included in Art Deco Initials, selected and arranged by Carol Belanger Grafton [Dover, 1991; “selected from rare periodicals (mostly European), type catalogs and printed ephemera ofthe 20s and 30s.”]

Completely redrawn, the onion-like cross-section is simplified, the shapes regularized, and the character set expanded. Lends itself to overlapping, suggests the Op Art paintings of Bridget Riley and others.

Includes caps, numbers, punctuation, and international characters.
