    A set of 3 typefaces designed for a series of classics issued by Norwegian publishing house Skald Forlag. These fonts were developed to directly addressed the typesetting requirements for «skjønnlitteratur» as well as the specific demands of the «Nynorsk» language. Consisting of Serif, Italic and Sans — the latter equipped with Small Caps and 3 sets of numerals. The Roman and Italic can be seen as a twofold translation: by taking the revivals of Nicolas Jenson’s types (c. 1470) by the private press movement of the early 20th century as a model, Ellmer Stefan is adding on more link to this chain of reimaginations. Brushed off all nostalgic baggage, these faces are intended to render text in a clear yet distinct manner. The serifless companion Skald Sans is a nod to two of the finest designers of the 20th century, namely William A. Dwiggins and Berthold Wolpe. —— Developed in close collaboration with Simone Stibbe (Skald Forlag) and Øystein Vidnes. Read Less
