Development Process

The general style of the letters refers to the historical shapes of uncial and half-uncial scripts. The extreme terminals featuring very sharp angles emerged from an experimental approach of digitization. For better readability, some of the shapes were adapted to fit contemporary demands and current reading habits. By default, a lot of typical shapes from the uncial were preserved but can always be swapped with optional alternates.
