About this font family
Backstein is an abstract sans built to last. Its strong horizontal foundation, pragmatic construction, and rock-solid texture make it a powerful choice for display and logotype applications, while its original lettershapes and subtle eccentricities maintain legibility even at smaller sizes. It comes fully equipped with pan-european language support, ligatures, and stylistic alternates.
Backstein is now available in a spectrum of 8 weights, from ethereal Hairline to bedrock Bold. While each weight is available individually, we recommend the Backstein Essentials (Light, Regular, Bold) or Backstein Family (all 8 weights) value packs.
