Grab your dirndl and apron, your lederhosen and suspenders, or maybe just a swimsuit and sunscreen, and head to Helen, Georgia, where it’s ersatz Oktoberfest all year.
Or, if the timber-town-turned-tourist-trap in North Georgia is not in your travel plans, do yourself a favor and check out its visitor bureau website.
Just van Rossum’s FF Brokenscript does the heavy lifting to make this feel Bavarian-isch and its Fraktur-inspired stroke ends and angled forms are echoed in the heraldic zigzags that separate page sections. Meanwhile David Jonathan Ross’s Trilby is a kind of secret weapon—all-caps when it’s the secondary display face and mixed case for navigation and smaller headlines—pulling things together and making it all feel fun, crafty, and a bit rustic.
Bonus points for pairing two underused typefaces and making something wonderful and unexpected.
