Wallace is a 16-style typeface named after Alfred Russel Wallace, a British naturalist who despite being largely unknown to the wider public, had independently arrived at the theory of evolution and whose work prompted Darwin to publish his book On the Origin of Species.

Wallace begins with a standard serif typeface and undergoes various treatments—cutting serifs off, chopping the glyphs into pieces, flipping glyphs upside down, etc.—to develop new styles.
