Saga is a rather narrow typeface designed for a typeface competition arranged by a Scandinavian graphic arts magazine. It had to be based on ancient runic characters, that's the reason of some peculiar angular shapes. Saga is not att all a new runic typeface, but a usable one when the columns are narrow.The name is taken, of course, from the Nordic mythology. But "saga" in the meaning of "story" contributed to the decision about the name.Saga was released in 1992.
