Berling Antikva. Semi-bold

Berling Antikva was created by the calligrapher and typographer Karl-Erik Forsberg (1914–1995). We have hundreds of kilograms of it. The semi-bold is kept here.


Garamond was my fathers favourite, though. He only kept a small sample of it when he retired because it was available everywhere. The text on his gravestone is in Garamond..
