Alejandro Paul for Sudtipos Type - (July 2013)
Zulia is located in the west of Venezuela and the state

high temperatures, oil and cheerful people, although Joluvian and
Alejandro Paul chose the name to honor Joluvian's mother, Zuliana,
a proud native of this land and everything that it represents.
Zulia is also Joluvian's first typographic project. It's based on
