Rikard Heberling, Nordische Antiqua Specimen, 2015. Published as part of the research project Errata: Swedish Typographic Histories, conducted 2014–15 at Konstfack University College of Arts, Crafts and Design. “Addressing typography and its relation to nationalism, the research has mainly dealt with the examination and rewriting of a dominant narrative of Swedishness within the history writing of typography in Sweden. The project has been aimed at investigating the campaign for a typographic national identity, taking place between the two Stockholm Exhibitions of 1897 and 1930. By tracing the writings and design attempts that evolved during this period, the research has sought to clarify and evaluate how the discourse of typographic Modernism emerged through this inductive phase of typographic nationalism. On a wider level, the project addresses a more general field of visible language and its political function within nationalism. How the notion of national-cultural character is projected through letterforms, alphabets and typography, and how these symbols of language are utilised as material components in the branding of a national identity, are some of the inquiries raised in the research.”
