Berling Nova – Font of the Week

Type Gallery – Berling Nova

Font Designer: Karl-Erik Forsberg, 2004
Direct to you, from Sweden! Berling™ Nova is an update to Berling, which is owned by the great Swedish publisher Verbum and is the most renowned Swedish book typeface. After 50 years of success, Linotype has helped build a new version that is optimized for the digital typesetting and printing processes, ensuring that Berling’s design remains a mainstay for years to come.
Since it is relatively unknown outside the northern countries, this fresh new typeface is just what you need to enliven your next book or magazine. Just as your readers most likely already appreciate the subtleties of Scandinavian design, they will appreciate your thoughtfulness as a designer when you set the text they are reading in this typeface. Its robust forms retain legibility in small sizes.
Berling Nova also has a special display Roman and Italic. These are much thinner and more delicate, and should be used in larger point sizes. The other Berling Nova weights are designed to be printed small; that’s what makes them so effective.
Berling Nova’s fonts are OpenType fonts with a “Pro” character set. This large character set supports over 40 European languages, including almost all the languages spoken in Western, Central, and Eastern Europe (Afrikaans, Albanian, Basque, Breton, Cornish, Czech, Danish, Dutch, English, Estonian, Faroese, Finnish, French, Frisian, Gaelic, Gagauz (Latin), Galician, German, Hungarian, Icelandic, Indonesian, Irish, Italian, Karelian, Ladin, Latvian, Lithuanian, Moldavian (Latin), Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Rheto-Romance, Romanian, Sami, Serbian (Latin), Slovak, Slovenian, Spanish, Swedish, Takalog, Turkish, and Turkmen (Latin).
Let the outstanding quality of this typeface convince you.
