About: After a career in the design industry and as an educator, Don Sterrenburg brought his wealth of knowledge and experience to bear in creating Summa. Sterrenburg is truly a master in the art of pen and ink.

The resulting typeface is a testament to the effort of everyone involved. The classic roman spirit and bracketed, cupped serifs together with the narrow width and elevated x-height of Summa give it a lofty, elegant appearance and an economic use of space. The ‘true italic’ counterpart style (not simply slanted or oblique) has a more calli­graphic in­flu­ence in the letter­forms is a well balanced and thoughtful adaptation of the regular design.

Summa Inline is a fascinating stylistic variation that takes the design of Summa to another place entirely. It is nothing short of a complete re-imagining of the structure of the forms found in the regular. The inline seems to twist in places, dropping out where strokes cross over each other and creating an almost three dimensional, ribbon-like appearance at times. In addition, the inline variant of Summa includes a set of swash capital letters that allow designers to easily give their setting that extra little dash of calligraphic flare and exuberance.

Summa’s height and compact measure make it an ideal choice for use in headlines, book titles, on posters, for drop-caps, and other instances where large display sizes are needed in tight spaces but heavy weights are not desired.
