Ivar Nostalgi Font Family
The advent of phototypesetting in the 1950s liberated type design. As soon as letters stopped being physical things in metal or wood, it led to an explosion of exuberant and extravagant display type. A recurring aesthetic in the 1970s was large x-height, tight-but-not touching letterspacing, and extreme contrast. Ivar Nostalgi unabashedly taps into this golden age of display typography. The special cut of Ivar, tailored for compact, high-impact headlines, flirts with almost-forgotten faces like Times Modern, Caslon Graphique, Trooper Roman, Hawthorn and ITC Grouch.
