Slatkine & Compagnie
Two publishers creating a new house: what could be better than a typeface to define their identity?
Collaboration with Base Design Geneva.
Slatkine & Compagnie is a publishing house, with headquarters both in France and Switzerland, where the Slatkine family works in the book trade since four generations. As publishers of contemporary literature, they needed a personal yet classical font, with a good readability in text size. Relatively large, the Slatkine font provides a comfortable reading experience. It is partly inspired by Giovanni Mardersteig and Charles Malin’s Zeno, with contemporary choices. Fitted to book productions, it has a series of titling capitals, devoted to drop initials. Its italic is calm and serene. Ready to set page-turners.
