Karben 205 Adrian Talbot Talbot Type A straightforward sans-serif design from Talbot Type, the Karben 205 family is an elegant design hewn in a similar visual vein as the suite of DIN typefaces. It possesses a functional monoline feel, and is well-suited projects that need a dignified workhorse of a typeface. Karben 205’s design also pairs well with its companion design — Karben 105 — as well as with the monospaced variants of both families.
