Walburn was originally developed as a headline face for The Globe and Mail (“Canada’s National Newspaper“).
It has narrow serifs and sidebearings, for a tight fit; and a finely-detailed, stylized finish to add visual interest.
The faux finish of this condensed Walbaum revival discreetly apes the look of letterpress.
It is an effect that can be controlled, with a variety of “optically scaled“ fonts.
The Fine styles have finer details, narrower serifs, and a tighter fit, for use at very large sizes.
