After designing two script fonts (lp Pinselschrift, lp Bambus), Peter Langpeter has now drawn an elegant Antiqua font, namely lp Saturnia, derived and conceived from his work in developing headlines and logos.
The aim was to create a modern interpretation of the classical Roman letters (Capitalis Monumentalis or Trajan by Carol Twombly), avoiding the archaic look of these letter forms. Also, the difficulty of spacing characters with excessive forms, such as the long tails of ‘K’ and ‘R’, are avoided. Additionally, lp Saturnia also comes with lower case characters.
The result is a contemporary and elegant typeface that is more suitable for practical use, without renouncing the classical Roman character.
