Homenaje is inspired by the bronze cemetery art found in the Recoleta and Chacaritas districts of Buenos Aires, Argentina. A grotesque and narrow type, it provides economy in text setting without losing its strong, straight and steady features. The name “Homenaje” means tribute in Spanish, a modest way to honor the patient and accurate work of the lettering artists whose bronze letters honor a lifetime.

One morning, when Gregor Samsa woke from troubled dreams, he found himself transformed in his bed into a horrible vermin. He lay on his armour-like back, and if he lifted his head a little he could see his brown belly, slightly domed and divided by arches into stiff sections. The bedding was hardly able to cover it and seemed ready to slide off any moment. His many legs, pitifully thin compared with the size of the rest of him, waved about helplessly as he looked.
