About Kolinsky Sable SG Font Family

Here’s what happens when you use a fully-loaded Asian mink Kolinsky brush to imitate an old script letter style of the World War II era. Originally published in 1944, Charles P. Bluemlein’s enchanting design has the same bounce, warmth, and charm found in many old magazines and movie titles of that period. Two digital versions are provided in the set. Kolinsky Sable Heavy with Alternates retains Bluemlein’s original heavy, contrasting capital letters. However, some modifications, such as less severe slanting and looser letterspacing, are also present. You will find this version very helpful when setting in small sizes. If you prefer the tighter, brush-lettered look of the times, try Kolinsky Sable Two Heavy. Caps are somewhat lighter making for generally better color overall. This version is ideal for headlines and logos. Alternate capital and lowercase characters plus an alternate set of small numbers have been provided. Fine-tuning is possible since many lowercase characters are interchangeable. Kolinsky Sable Heavy and Kolinsky Sable Two Heavy are now available in the OpenType Std format. Some new characters have been added to these OpenType versions including stylistic alternates and historical forms. These advanced features work in current versions of Adobe Creative Suite InDesign, Creative Suite Illustrator, and Quark XPress. Check for OpenType advanced feature support in other applications as it gradually becomes available with upgrades.

About Spiece Graphics

Jim Spiece enjoyed resurrecting old typefaces. And finding a complete set of characters could often be a challenging task. It took him down into the musty basements of public libraries and out into the world of flea markets and hole-in-the-wall bookstores. After careful scanning and hand-outlining, he would occasionally dig deeper for a missing punctuation mark or double f-ligature. Jim chuckled, “These are all minor inconveniences when you consider you’ve brought these faces back from obscurity and found them new homes. Besides, it’s fun. In one sense, my own designs are a lot easier because they never had a previous life!” You can check out Jim’s revival of the Bernhard Gothic SG Family offered by FontHaus or his popular ITC Blair Family.
