A nice example of Souvenir in use

Souvenir gets it share of bashing here, so I thought I'd post these nice examples of it in use. I think it works quite well, paired with Serifa. It's a non-profit magazine called Sorthvit.



Please forgive the terrible quality. It's due to low light, a lousy photographer and no scanner available.

However: the light weight is horrible ;)

You might be interested in [[http://typophile.com/node/14173|this discussion of Souvenir]] and the extensive Typowiki entry on [[Souvenir]].

I think that the caps are stronger than the lowercase, which is marred by the loopy e. Only one weight was drawn--or supervised--by Morris Fuller Benton. The others were drawn by Ed Benguiat in the 60 for photo typesetting.

Nice pictures, but I'm not sure if Souvenir works so well here. Less so about the pairing of Souvenir and Serifa.

Btw Frode, that's a lovely avatar you've got there! What is it?

Berries on a table spelling "kaos" (which is norwegian for "chaos") in a very chaotic way.

:) Cheers.
