Specimen, Heldane typeface, 2014
From century to century, many designers have created new interpretations of the typefaces cut by Claude Garamond in France in the sixteenth century. Heldane is Sowersby’s muscular revival of this classic Renaissance idiom. The bold weights of Heldane demonstrate Sowersby’s distinctive ability to combine delicacy and strength. Sowersby is a leader in the field of typeface design; he offers his wares to the global design community through his Klim Type Foundry.
