The mysterious Lapland

While looking at elegant slab-serifs (like the fantastic Archer [1], which, believe it or not, has a blog dedicated to it [2]), I came across Lapland.

Who has designed Lapland? And why, when googling it, can it only be found on pirate font sites?

Any tips?

Hmmm, never heard of it before, and some preliminary web searching didn’t turn up anything other than the free download sites.

Compare »Lapland« to Lubalin Graph, then check page 148 of the Solotype Catalog and the mystery as well as a few »forgers« will be revealed. The designers are: Herb Lubalin and Ed Benguiat.
