Frustro: The Impossible Typeface

Imagine the experience of reading something printed in Frustro…a font that captures the illusory nature of our daily world. Hopefully available for your use soon, it was conceived to perfectly embody impossibility. Via Jeannie Jeannie:

Hungarian designer Martzi Hegedűs has created a single typeface, titled Frustro, on the sole premise of making it impossible. He imagined each letter as an extension of the Penrose triangle (an impossible object whose creator deemed it “impossibility in its purest form”) the type appears to be facing two different directions simultaneously.
