Font of the Week (14) – Sabon
Today we do it the elegant way. I have decided to talk a bit about an old style serif font.
The font’s name is:
Sabon has been created by the German typographer and calligrapher Jan Tschichold in 1967.
The font bases on the famous Garamond-font, but Tschichold made it more legible. At that time typesetting didn’t happen on computers, as we know it. Printers used so called phototypesetting machines. Major systems were Monotype and Linotype and by creating the Sabon Tschichold made sure that reproduction on both systems were brought to the same standard.
