DEAFHEAVEN sell ‘Sunbather’ font

This is an interesting one. San Francisco metal darlings Deafheaven are selling the font that was created especially for their most recent record.

Designer Nick Steinhard commented, “‘Sunbather’ is a stenciled flare-serif display face inspired by bright light and dissipating legibility. Referencing similar historical type experiments by Jan Tschicold, it questions the mind to connect what the eyes cannot see when the thinnest strokes of a didone font evaporate. The results were then finely tapered and sharpened to create a stern and angular mood when set in text or large words.”


Which is nice.
