Born out of love for the famous author’s novels, Steinbeck is a display-face inspired by transitional and modern fonts such as Baskerville and Surveyor. Steinbeck intends to embody the class that was the person, and embody the magnificent personality and color of the mind behind the writing. A combination of a wide “o” and rounded lowercase terminals make a bubbly appearance to the reader, while sharp ascenders and balanced widths carry the author’s somewhat stubborn personality.With heavily contrasted thicks and thins, and steady, predictable curves, this typeface is intended for headlines, titles, and other large formats.
