Strange Light is a brand new imprint from Penguin Random House Canada. Their website combines several of Sharp Grotesk’s many widths (Medium 12, 18, 25).
We wanted something weird for Strange Light — there was a specific feeling we were trying to evoke, a creepiness to the aesthetic. We chose Sharp Grotesk because of its varied widths, and wonky imperfections. It successfully sets the mood we were going for.
From the team behind Penguin Random House Canada’s award-winning magazine Hazlitt, Strange Light publishes unpredictable, innovative authors telling personal and provocative and experimental stories, even—and especially—those that defy easy categorization. With a list composed of both Canadian and international titles, Strange Light publishes vital voices, new and established alike, that command attention and curiosity, offering readers the delight of the unexpected.
