Carter Sans Keepsake


Apex, aperture, cross stroke, body height, descender, ligature – for fans of typography and all its nuances, you could say this lovely card is akin to a collector’s baseball card.

Commemorating the introduction of the Carter Sans typeface in January 2011, the 5.5 x 8.5 keepsake (printed on the smooth uncoated finish of Rives BFK White) gives us important vital stats on these rookie characters.

Best of all, we not only get to see the new typeface, but thanks to the letterpress printing, we get to feel our way up the stem of the “L” … through the counter of the “o” … across the vertex of the “V” … around the eye of the “e.”

Oh yes, this is a L o V e affair with type. And this keepsake card hit a homerun with us.
