Ivar is a serif typeface family designed by Göran Söderström and published through Letters from Sweden in 2017. The design began as a serif companion to the foundry’s sans-serif Siri family but deviated significantly from there. Ivar is available in three distinct optical sizes—Ivar Text, Ivar Headline and Ivar Display—with each optical size available in four weights with corresponding italics. There is also a chunkier version, Ivar Nostalgi, which was influenced by the high-contrast phototypesetting faces popular during the 1970s. A rounded version, Ivar Soft, is available as well.
