A serif designed as a companion to the Schar font family. Using the sans serif as a template accurate serif details are then carefully drawn into each character improving readability and further enhancing the fonts fluid and dynamic personality. Scharf used in conjunction with the sans serif becomes a large font system purposely suited for editorial design and complex typographic hierarchy. Details include eight weights and true italics, over 800 characters with alternative lowercase a, e, g and y. Seven variations of numerals, true small caps with accents, ligatures, manually edited kerning and Opentype features. Scharf is exclusive to The Northern Block and is also available to view in an iBook font specimen designed by Allon Kaye.
