We are delighted to announce a new addition to our Georg Salden Library: Essenz, a modern neo-classical roman. It is an elegant, high contrast typeface that does not imitate a historical form. Its originality is evident in many details: The subtle endings at j and y. The distinctive terminals at a, c, f, and r. The gaps at B und R. The lively Q. The inventive et-sign. The subtle ear of the g. Notable also the italic with its soft endings and dynamic diagonal characters.
First sketch by Georg Salden from 1999.
