Background

Like no other typeface, Lexicon unites Swiss as well as Dutch type demands: economy, elegance, quality and “cleanliness”.
In its origin, the typeface was designed to be used with low-res printers, as laser printers and newspapers. For this reason it could be best used for what its name describes: reference books, the Bible, timetables and other text heavy print products. Lexicon was commissioned, as the name suggests, for a new Dutch dictionary. It was therefore designed to be as compact as a Bible type but to function in a range of sizes to allow many shades and degrees of emphasis.
