New release: Dala Floda by Paul Barnes


Today we announce our final release of 2010, Dala Floda, designed by Paul Barnes. Originally inspired by worn gravestone lettering and lettering on shipping crates, this typeface has its roots in the typefaces of the Renaissance but adds the twist of being a stencil letterform. First designed in 1997 for a logotype, Dala Floda eventually became the headline typeface for the art magazine frieze in 2005 and was used as the basis for our own logotype. Dala Floda is unusually full-featured for a display typeface, with small caps available in all roman weights and contextual swashes, alternates, and an extensive set of historical ligatures in all italic weights.
