Wow! Satura really has some personality! Lovely!
I'll answer Cecilia's call for suggestions with the following. They are not new designs, but are underused and mostly unknown.
Indigo, esp the Poster size (Johan Ström, SE) Arnold Samuels (Hans Samuelson, SE) Orlando Samuels (Hans Samuelson, SE) Brasserie (Stefan Hattenbach, SE) Sophisto (Stefan Hattenbach, SE) Filt (Martin Lexelius, SE) Borgstrand (Martin Lexelius, SE) Paracelsus (Lars Bergquist, SE) Heroine (Göran Söderström, SE) Pilo (Göran Söderström, SE) Ticketbook (Tomi Haaparanta, FI) Tart (Tomi Haaparanta, FI) Skilt Gothic (Mårten Thavenius, SE from Knud V. Engelhardt, DK) FP Dancer (Morten Olsen, DK) FP Palina (Fontpartners, DK)
And I'm sure Claus Eggers Sørensen (DK), Magnus Rakeng (NO), and Peter Bruhn (SE) have unreleased work they might be willing to share. Maybe you'll even get them to wrap up one of those unfinished projects that deserves to be seen.
