FF Kievit Slab and FF Kievit

Today we look at the unison pairing of Michael Abbink & Paul van der Laan’s FF Kievit Slab with the original FF Kievit.

The overall feeling between the two is difficult to describe; the humanistic forms create an air both American and European, and at once neither. Either of the Kievits are at home setting body text, but just to demonstrate opposing roles, I pair here various weights of the sans with FF Kievit Slab’s book weight. Both variants come in a complete set of nine weights from Thin to Black.
