Letters from Sweden

Magazines & Newspapers
Stockholm i mitt hjärta

Letters from Sweden is a Type foundry designing retail typefaces and custom typefaces. Behind the company stands Göran Söderström. We believe you can find inspiration anywhere; in nature, in miscommunication, in meeting other people or in studying old type specimens. Examining your roots every now and then is good. In doing so it’s important not to get too entangled, reviving without reflection. Our responsibility to tradition is to make improvements by producing contemporary typefaces that correspond to the technical and aesthetic expectations of today. These Letters come from Sweden, but they are for everyone. We hope you find inspiration in our efforts.

Interactive Type Specimens from All of Us to All of You
Älskade mamma! Jag är välbehållen framme och nu ska jag berätta om min resa, men i förhoppning att mamma ännu är kvar på Gustafsfors ber jag mamma framföra, till Moster och Morbror mina tacksägelser för den tid jag var på Gustafsfors. Det var tråkigt att lemna ett ställe der man trifs så godt och jag tycker ej mamma borde göra sig för brådtom med att lämna det.
Peter Bruhn, I miss you.
A typeface may come in fonts of many weights, from ultra-light to extra-bold or black; four to six weights are not unusual, and a few typefaces have as many as a dozen.
When you believe in things that you don’t understand, then you suffer, superstition ain’t the way.
These Letters are from Sweden,
but they are for all of us.
