Sweden just got a new set of stamps called Typsnitt, showing five typefaces designed by Swedes. Traffic, Satura, Sispos, Indigo Antiqua and Berling Antikva range from 1951 to 2010. The engravings of these typefaces bring type to a conceptual full circle, that returns it to the pre-letterpress era. Satura was co-designed by Peter Bruhn, who is one of the country’s most reputable designers, having been involved with the previous redesign of newspaper Sydsvenskan and Malmö-based type foundry Fountain.
