JY Klin

Novalis was designed by one of New Zealand’s most underrated talents, Mark Geard. Originally created in the mid-1990s, it found some success as an independently distributed typeface family. Along the way, JY&A Fonts actually helped with extra weights. Now, we offer Novalis’s three weights reworked and kerned with over 3,000 pairs per font. Also in OpenType.

Mark Geard, 1996–7, 2006
