Monument is Menhart’s extraordinary artistic interpretation of majestic capitals. The typeface bears all of the features of ancient Roman monumental inscriptions carved in stone.
In 1949, Oldřich Menhart was the graphic designer of publication “Satyr”, a set of lithographs by Max Švabinský accompanied by poems by Victor Hugo, for the Sfinx publishing house. He calligraphed the title page and several dividing pages in a majestic shadowed capital letters. This work was so warmly received by the expert community that even Jan Tschichold called on him to develop this study into its own typeface. So in 1950, Menhart completed the design of the Monument typeface, which was released in 1953 by the Grafotechna type foundry in four sizes: 24, 28, 36 and 48 point.
