About NaN Tresor
In life and to some extent when designing fonts we are confronted with a choice our survival depends on. NaN Tresor’s designer Christoph Koeberlin made the innovative decision — for his own survival — to make no final decision. He offers an anachronous revival, side-stepping natural selection (sorry Darwin), where every glyph variation somehow flourishes in one font.
When reviving historical material one can’t help but rationalise our elders’ inconsistencies. We typically choose one unique structure for each form that is then consistently applied across the design system. Koeberlin made a counter-intuitive decision and birthed a family offering the most historical and fictional variations in structure possible between the different styles of his typeface. This has an interesting outcome for NaN Tresor’s users: navigating through the different styles they can choose the glyph variations they like the most, or even access all different versions from each style, no matter what the default curation.
Tresor is available in three optical sizes: NaN Tresor S with its wider spacing and thin joins is most suited to small sizes and longer form reading. Tresor M has an equitable spacing which makes it shine at most scales. Tresor L with its particularly tight packing lands with the most exuberant alternates by default and is tailored for titles with panache. Licensees of the Complete Family will discover Tresor Swash as an alternative version of Tresor L with ornamental caps and swashes activated by default.
With its sometime eight alternates per glyph plus swashes, a single style of NaN Tresor can take on many different faces. So if your survival-depending decision gives you the bends, just choose the no-choice pro-choice choice of NaN Tresor.
I am already far north of London, and as I walk in the streets of Petersburgh, I feel a cold northern breeze play upon my cheeks, which braces my nerves and fills me with delight. Do you understand this feeling? This breeze, which has travelled from the regions towards which I am advancing, gives me a foretaste of those icy climes. Inspirited by this wind of promise, my daydreams become more fervent and vivid. I try in vain to be persuaded that the pole is the seat of frost and desolation; it ever presents itself to my imagination as the region of beauty and delight. There, Margaret, the sun is for ever visible, its broad disk just skirting the horizon and diffusing a perpetual splendour. There—for with your leave, my sister, I will put some trust in preceding navigators—there snow and frost are banished; and, sailing over a calm sea, we may be wafted to a land surpassing in wonders and in beauty every region hitherto discovered on the habitable globe. Its productions and features may be without example, as the phenomena of the heavenly bodies undoubtedly are in those undiscovered solitudes. What may not be expected in a country of eternal light? I may there discover the wondrous power which attracts the needle and may regulate a thousand celestial observations that require only this voyage to render their seeming eccentricities consistent for ever. I shall satiate my ardent curiosity with the sight of a part of the world never before visited, and may tread a land never before imprinted by the foot of man. These are my enticements, and they are sufficient to conquer all fear of danger or death and to induce me to commence this laborious voyage with the joy a child feels when he embarks in a little boat, with his holiday mates, on an expedition of discovery up his native river. But supposing all these conjectures to be false, you cannot contest the inestimable benefit which I shall confer on all mankind, to the last generation, by discovering a passage near the pole to those countries, to reach which at present so many months are requisite; or by ascertaining the secret of the magnet, which, if at all possible, can only be effected by an undertaking such as mine.
