Calavera is a display family inspired by nineteenth-century Mexican engravings and the mexican culture of papel picado, which literally means 'punched' or 'perforated' paper. This traditional cut-paper folk art is found throughout Mexico and in the folk traditions of many other countries. In Mexico, the tradition is widely used in the celebration of Día de los Muertos (The Day of the Dead). The family comes in seven versions + a set of patterns. Calavera was awarded with an excellence in typeface design by Communication Arts in 2014, and selected in the Bienal Tipos Latinos 2014.
