"Thieves Like Us" is a collaboration between Commercial Type and designer and artist Dino Sanchez. This temporary showroom will exhibit Marian, a new typeface by Paul Barnes that reduces classic models of serif type design to their basic skeletal forms, exploring the possibilities offered by these single stroke forms in a variety of media.
