Typeface Laura

I have created serif typeface based on broad-nib calligraphy and carolingian minuscule. Among my inspirations were: Espinosa Nova, Garamond, Bembo, Centaur, Edita Book, Minion.

Firstly, I have drawn letters with broad nip, then scanned it and put in Fontlab VI.

I wanted to keep the calligraphic character, that’s why there is diagonal axis and the shapes of bowl of “b”, “d”, “p” and terminals of “a”, “c”, “r” are like that.

I have created polish diacritics, punctuation marks, two number sets (old style figures and lining numbers), spacing, kerning and hinting.
