Font of the Week — Sabon

by Lissa Eckert

in Font of the Week


The font face Sabon was released in the 1960s as both Linotype and Monotype compatible. Jan Tschichold created this Old Style Serif in response to Stempel Foundry’s request to create a face that would match across both mediums. In honor of Garamond’s Roman typeface (the font that inspired this uniform print-friendly version), Tschichold named it after creator Jacques Sabon. And the rest they say, is history.
