About this font family

This font was inspired by the so-called Litterarum latinarum, quas italicas, cursoriasque vocant, scribendum Ratio (Louvain 1540), a manual intended for calligraphers by the well known scientist Gerhard Mercator.

It was a magnificent “Cancellaresca corsiva” design, enriched with many alternates, final loops and ligatures.

We have added a lot of accented and other characters required for modern use that did not exist in the original.
