I started to design the NewLibris family many years ago, when I was working with Boris Bencic on the first issue of Frank magazine back in 1997. Later in 1999 NewLibris was used in Frank magazine
as well as for Bally Switzerland as a corporate typeface. In addition Bally wanted a exclusive Serif for Libris in regular and italic.
Later after the exclusive contract has ended I finally designed the family of 7 weights with italics.
NewLibrisSerif is a perfect companion for NewLibris Sans. In copy you should not get heavier than Heavy. Extrabold and Ultrabold work best in display.
In the standard set the main figures are tabular but with a proportional old style figure set as a feature.
Traditional and stylistic ligatures are also part of the feature set.
