Background

Some years ago I bought a book about a classic brewery located in the town of Karlskrona in southern Sweden. Both of my parents were born in that city, and it had always been special to me. My grandfather often told me of the special taste that Karlskrona beer used to have. The brewery is now long gone, the same way that many type foundries have passed on. The headline typeface used in the book was beautiful, handmade by a local artist. After thinking about it for some time, I started to revive the design into the digital shapes which would eventually become Brasserie. The final design is 80 – 90% true to the original, but some changes were made to fulfill more modern typographic needs.
