- This font was inspired from the Latin script used in european monasteries from circa 5th to 8th, before the Carolingian "Caroline". It was a regular script, rounded, written slowly, used mainly for specially meticulous books, with a little few of ligatures, legible, but only with lowercase. The capitals was consisting in enlarged lowercases, but here, we prefered to use two slightly different patterns. Our lowercases are a synthesis from a lot of variants (mainly from the "First Bible" of Charles The Bald), the uppercases were mainly inspired from a 700's manuscript from Fecamp's abbey (France).
We have created the font as to be adapted for contemporary users, making difference between U and V, I and J, which has not any relevance for ancient Latin scribes, and naturally with Thorn, Oslash, L slash, K,W... punctuation and usual accented characters who was no more existing by the time.
