Background

The Sang Bleu family was created by Ian Party for his partner Max Buechi’s publication of culture and photography, SangBleu. Stripping his Romain BP down to its bare essentials, Party created a family in the tradition of fashion magazine typography: thin, graceful, classic and modern at once. SangBleu comes in sans and serif varieties, the sans taking on an almost inscriptional quality. The Hairline weights are especially delicate “ the Serif is probably the lightest of its class •€” best used only at very large sizes.
