Simple. No-nonsense. Honest. Ein Kerl eben. A good guy. A chap. That’s all there is to say.
Kerl was made for Karl Lagerfeld’s book Chanel’s Russian Connection and subsequently used for covers of books by/on Boris Mikhailov and Alexander Rodchenko. Having rediscovered it more recently, having used it, having realized just how powerful it is as a typographic tool – it transforms words into statements – made me want to include it in the KLTF library so you can enjoy using it, too.

Features

Kerl can change its appearance with help of six stylistic set features. Cyrillic alternates. A more spotty K. Plus wider E F H Z, in four steps, which allow spacing out a line – to be used sparingly though.

That said, not all operating systems and applications support OpenType Layout features and kerning equally well, if at all.
