Arnhem and Ludwig

Great Pairs, set in Ludwig and Arnhem

Ludwig and Arnhem

Another perhaps lesser-known ‘made for each other’ pairing is Fred Smeijers Arnhem, and its charmingly awkward companion grotesque, Ludwig. The two are drawn with the same vertical metrics to work compatibly across sizes. Arnhem is a contemporary Dutch Fleischman, cool, dark and rationalized but with a nice bit of sparkle here and there. While Ludwig appears a little imbalanced up close, seen as a body its texture is surprisingly even and undoubtedly warm.

Both come in an extensive range of weights. Ludwig and Ludwig Semi Condensed are shown above on the left. Arnhem, Arnhem Display, and the sophisticated optically sized Arnhem Fine to the right.
