Battleslab is a slab serif, primarily made for setting a small number of words in large sizes. Two highly contrasting weights, mono-line wide light and heavy black, make it perfect for creating that one-two punch effect in headlines or logotypes. Display-oriented Battleslab is derived from the Battlefin family (which is much more comprehensive with its ligatures, italics and SC).

Of all the things in this world that man has invented, nothing can compare to the alphabet. To be able to send to a friend or acquaintance, far away somewhere in the wide world, one’s thoughts on a piece of paper: to be able to read what others wrote two thousand years ago and to be able to write something that others will be able to read several thousand years later; that is a science almost transcending the bounds of the human mind, and one can say that whoever first invented it, was more God than man. The alphabet has opened the road to the human mind, enabling it to approach God to the limits of its possibilities. It was invented some four thousand years ago, and after its difficult and strange development it has become so easy that today there is no easier skill, and has spread so much in the world that at present in Europe there are peoples among whom there is no one who cannot read and write.
