Halibut Serif is a Roman typeface inspired by the classics but with a shade of the contemporary. Influenced by the Roman practice of glyph engraving into marble books, it went onto take on the limitations of these primitive chisel tools and “use them as an aesthetic peculiarity.”

Halibut Serif takes inspiration from Aldo Novarese’s Nova Augustea from 1964, and a classic sign for a pharmacy in Brera, Milan.  The result is "something very spiky and cold” and so named Halibut as a reference to fishing hooks and shiny sharp fish.
