Ian Whittlesea – Sol sans

Progress Through Typography is pleased to announce Sol Sans, a new typeface designed by Ian Whittlesea.
It is based on Sol LeWitt's handwritten
Sentences on Conceptual Art, first published in 0-9, New York, 1969, and Art-Language, England, May 1969.

Any letters and numbers not used in LeWitt's original text have been replaced with Helvetica Medium.
Sol Sans is a typeface that does a single job perfectly, allowing anyone to re-write LeWitt's work, and in the process follows Sentence 5:
Irrational thoughts should be followed absolutely and logically.
