Musica typeface

This typeface was inspired by the cover of the musical composition “So This Is Venice,” which can be heard in “The New 1923 Ziegland Follies.” The Ziegland Follies were a series of theatrical productions that took place on Broadway in New York City from 1907 through 1931. These productions normally involved a variety of music, dance, and sketches. Theatrical history combined with the location of the compositional piece, Venice Italy, led this typeface to be named after the Italian derivative of the word music: Musica. Thin counters and decorative serifs give this typeface its unique look.
