Solveig

Solveig

Solveig is a stressed sans that draws inspiration from calligraphy and classic inscriptions. Its ascenders and descenders are long and expressive; in place of finials, its terminals taper to points. It is well suited for display, but remains very readable at smaller sizes in longer passages.

Solveig is named after Edvard Grieg’s “Solveig’s Song,” a quiet piece of concentrated, chilled emotion that accompanied me through the entire design process.

For more information, see the font's page at the Looseleaf Fonts site.

Installing

Download the ZIP of all the files:

SolveigComplete.zip

Extract it, and you've got .otf files, which your computer should be able to make sense of. Install it in whatever way you normally install fonts.

Developing

You can choose from .ufo files or .otf files; they're both here. Be aware that I haven't done any work on this font in many years, and the .ufo files were automatically generated by FontForge.

Don't let the scent of abandonware scare you off, though; I'm proud of this font and it hasn't decayed since I finished it. There are no pictures as of yet, but I expect to have a chance to put some up soon.
