Provocation Prevarication 


Letterpress
“Provocation” and “prevarication,” two words often used in describing Trump’s behavior, were handset in Bodoni (to connote loud affluence) and Helvetica (in reference to 45’s campaign typeface choice of Akzidenz-Grotesk), respectively. The smaller, more insidious “prevarication” projects from a mouthlike shape. A discreet presidential seal is embossed below the capital “T.”
