Bil’ak’s designs for the 39- and 78-eurocent stamps were inspired by the patchwork of the Dutch landscape as seen from the air. The width of each letter, set in Bil’ak’s Fedra Serif, determines the width of the surrounding color block, echoing the centuries-old art 

of metal typesetting. Bil’ak sees the stamps as an homage to Dutch traditions.  Photo 2 of 18 in Typographer Focus: Peter Biľak
