Sharp Grotesk Specimen Pages

Two A4-sized printed pages + a 420 x 594mm fold-out poster featuring Lucas Sharp’s Sharp Grotesk. Printed on Mohawk Superfine in fluorescent red, black and silver. Hole punched to fit in an A4 binder.

Swiss styling collides with the wonky imperfectionism of Industrial Era American wood type in Lucas Sharp’s monument to Adrian Frutiger, Sharp Grotesk. With its exuberant personality, ink traps, and incredible range of styles, Sharp Grotesk is a brand new and uniquely American perspective on the genre of the multi-width grotesk. Beginning as hand drawn poster lettering in 2011, the full family of 259 fonts was completed in 2017.

This specimen is available for sale and ships free to clients who license Sharp Grotesk.
