Sabon® Next – Sabon Next
The revival of the famous Sabon with more weights for better communication, small caps and old style figuresIn creating Sabon® Next, Jean François Porchez revived a revival. The original Sabon typeface, designed by Jan Tschichold, was itself a contemporary revival of Claude Garamond’s 16th century types for the 1960s.
The OpenType UpdateNow available for the first time in OpenType format, Sabon Next is more useful to designers than ever before. A part of Linotype’s Platinum Collection, the Sabon Next family includes 12 component fonts, all filled with helpful OpenType features.
Proven legibility. Even in newspaper printing!For over five years, the professional publishing community world-over has relied on Sabon Next. Two brilliant examples of the type in use hail from Japan and Germany. First, Sabon Next was recently selected as one of the house types for Suntory (the Japanese beverage giant) to employ in their new corporate identity system. Additionally, Sabon Next is used by the Frankfurter Neue Presse daily newspaper as their base text face. The FNP was the first newspaper to select Sabon Next for its text face.
How did Porchez go about reviving Tschichold’s revival?First he referred to the three original metal versions of Sabon: those for Linotype casting, Monotype machines, and hand-setting. The later was distributed by D. Stempel AG of Frankfurt. This version operated under less constraints than those for other platforms, so it seemed closer to Tschichold’s pure interpretation of the Garamond ancestors. It was only natural that Porchez based Sabon Next on this particular version. However, he also referred to original 16th century printed specimens of Garamond’s types, carefully improving the proportions of the existing digital Sabon as he went along.

These features are only accessible in applications that are OpenType-savvy, including the Adobe CS line and QuarkXPress version 7.0 and up.
Sabon Next is an OpenType family with TrueType outlines (OpenType TTF). This ensure cross-platform compatibility between the Mac and PC into the future, and it also improves upon the on-screen display of the fonts in common Office applications on Windows PCs.
