About Backstein Font Family


Backstein is an abstract sans built to last. Its strong horizontal foundation, pragmatic construction, and rock-solid texture make it a powerful choice for display and logotype applications, while its original lettershapes and subtle eccentricities maintain legibility even at smaller sizes. It comes fully equipped with pan-european language support, ligatures, and stylistic alternates. Backstein is now available in a spectrum of 8 weights, from ethereal Hairline to bedrock Bold. While each weight is available individually, we recommend the Backstein Essentials (Light, Regular, Bold) or Backstein Family (all 8 weights) value packs. Backstein is an original design by Catharsis Fonts (Christian Thalmann) that took its inspiration from the broken antiqua lettering in Berlin�s old subway stations. Its name means �baked brick� in German, summing up the intent behind the design: A solid, no-nonsense font you can build on. This font is dedicated to Simone.
