Launched in 1999, the original iteration of FF Karbid was published in three weights and one display version. Undergoing a complete redesign in 2011, it was released as FF Karbid Pro. An evolution of the original, the updated version is more harmonized and significantly extended to include ten basic styles, plus Text, Slab, Display versions. We are excited that the FF Karbid superfamily is the centerpiece for a book. Karbid: Berlin–From Lettering to Type Design is a text and pictorial archive telling the complete story behind the typeface FF Karbid. The collection also pays homage to the history of German lettering and the letter paintings of Berlin. Read Less
