About NaN Tragedy

NaN Tragedy is the unexpected consequence of time travel, a chimera child of 2 epochs. Its structure and energy are inheriting the pace of a monacal scribe while its geometrical detail treatment lies in the atom accelerator at CERN. Tragedy tells a story of oppositions lying in the same body. Classical but contemporary. Unconventional bu functional. Energetic and lively but sturdy. Extravagant but evident and simple.

NaN Tragedy Text embraces the challenge of being a functional text typeface with unconventional shapes. It applies an economic approach and optical corrections to display features like its exaggerated calligraphic contrast axis. These idiosyncrasies come upon a classic skeleton: Tragedy says legacy with one mouth, while the other face of this Janus looks towards modernity. It mixes exaggerated and virtuosos forms (look at the italics) with more simple, bare bones lines. This entanglement of simplicity and drama creates a palpable tension.

Tragedy’s features were pushed to their extreme theatrical expressions into a Display cut. NaN Tragedy Display emphasizes the extravaganza of the Text version in a more compact and contrasted design buckling down on finesse and character for tight and impactful headlines.

On the design stage, NaN Tragedy is a versatile type family. Traveling back in time, the question will now be, can NaN Tragedy be really avoided? www.infinite-tragedy.com

In 1970, Peter Schmidt created “The Thoughts Behind the Thoughts”, a box containing 55 sentences letterpress printed onto disused prints that accumulated in his studio, which is still in Eno’s possession. Eno, who had known Schmidt since the late 1960s, had been pursuing a similar project himself, which he had handwritten onto a number of bamboo cards and given the name “Oblique Strategies” in 1974. There was a significant overlap between the two projects, and so, in late 1974, Schmidt and Eno combined them into a single pack of cards and offered them for general sale. The set went through three limited edition printings before Schmidt suddenly died in early 1980, after which the card decks became rather rare and expensive. Sixteen years later software pioneer Peter Norton convinced Eno to let him create a fourth edition as Christmas gifts for his friends (not for sale, although they occasionally come up at auction). Eno’s decision to revisit the cards and his collaboration with Norton in revising them is described in detail in his 1996 book A Year with Swollen Appendices. With public interest in the cards undiminished, in 2001 Eno once again produced a new set of Oblique Strategies cards. The number and content of the cards vary according to the edition. In May 2013 a limited edition of 500 boxes, in burgundy rather than black, was issued.
