At last! FF Meta Serif

Wedding Bells

I would usually never post two articles in a single day (I won’t be making a habit of it). However, the excitement was just too much, and the news too hot. Many of you will be familiar with Spiekermann’s wonderful FF Meta. But for years FF Meta lived a lonely existence with no Serif companion to keep it company. Well, now FF Meta has a wife; meet Mrs FF Meta, officially called FF Meta Serif.

I must admit that I prefer the name FF Meta Serif to the working title, MetaAntiqua. For more information about this beauty, visit the original FontShop news item, where you can also download lots of gorgeous specimens.

All through the ’90s, Erik Spiekermann made several attempts at designing a counterpart for his groundbreaking FF Meta….True to his principle of collaboration, Spiekermann enlisted the help of accomplished type designers Christian Schwartz and Kris Sowersby.
