Rayuela

A vivid, multi-style typeface for informal reading atmospheres.

Designed by Alejandro Lo Celso. Published by PampaType in 2001 as part of the Rayuela Super Family.

Starts at $25.00 for a single style and is available for:

Rayuela (Argentine Spanish for Hopscotch) is inspired by the homonymous novel by celebrated Argentinian writer Julio Cortázar, whose writings are considered key to 20th century avant-garde literature. Rayuela is the result of a 2-year working process, at two postgraduate courses followed by Alejandro Lo Celso at the University of Reading, UK (1999-2000) and later at the ANRT Atelier National de Recherche Typographique, in Nancy, France (2000-2001). At both schools the type Rayuela worked as the practical side of research. Rayuela has been a popular face, maybe because there are not so many informal-spirited types with good legibility in sustained reading.


Rayuela was selected at the Bukva:raz! contest held by the ATypI in Moscow 2001, and later won a Certificate of Excellence at the TDC in 2006. Read more of Rayuela at PampaType.com.

Rayuela, as many of PampaType families, include text fonts as well as display fonts and other distressed sorts.

Noel Gallagher may not read it
Noel Gallagher’s statement that reading fiction is a “fucking waste of time” and readers are “putting themselves a tiny little bit above the rest of us” – is a valuable contribution.
Cathy Nicol: Isle of Joy
Vince Smith met bandmates Jim Kelly and Nancy Gibbs at a Sex Pistols concert, where he tried to kiss Sid Vicious’ guitar and got a bloody nose. Together they formed Aftershock, and for a while they made a lot of noise, a bit of money and caused a sensation wherever they went.
