Gustav Mårtensson, the designer of the stamps, explaining how the typefaces were selected by their importance to Swedish typographical history and their ability to represent the graphic expression of their time.

A new series of five stamps have recently been issued in Sweden, each portraying one influencial Swedish typeface to reflect the local typographic history. The five typefaces chosen were Berling (1951) by Karl-Erik Forsberg*, Indigo (1999) by Johan Ström, Sispos/Bosis (1973) by Bo Berndal, Satura (2010) by Göran Söderström, Peter Bruhn) and Traffic (1973) by Tom Hultgren).

*The digital version of Berling Antiqua is Berling Nova (2004) by Örjan Nordling and Fredrik Andersson.
