Default Berling reborn in OT format

This month’s LinoLetter features a new cut of Berling, dubbed Berling Nova — Sweden’s most famous and enduring typeface, designed in the 1950s by Karl-Erik Forsberg.

I have always liked Berling, and used it eons ago for a small job, a series of pamphlets. With this version Linotype says it has revised the font slightly, making it look more like the original metal version, and has added a display roman and italic. It is an OpenType family with six fonts, $35 U.S. each.

Berling is a decent book face, could work in magazines and in ads. It is very readable and has a fresh look, partly because it is so rarely used, partly because of its open design.

I have no idea what the entire family costs because the Linotype web site is so badly designed that I cannot find it. But there is probably some discount for the entire family.
