Shueitai is a DNP original typeface that has seen ongoing development since the Meiji era, which began in 1868. The typeface has developed a very good reputation among book creators and readers as a beautiful typeface that is easy to read.
In the Shueitai renewal initiative, called The Project to Renew Shueitai for the Heisei Era, that DNP has undertaken since 2005 as part of the celebrations for the 130th anniversary of the founding of the company, we have carried out development with an awareness of the existing usage environment and user needs, with the intention of passing down this high quality typeface to the next generation.
