About this font family

According to Hellmut G. Bomm "Nautilus was based on a handwritten type used for the text Li. Das Helle, Klare from the I Ging.

“The headstrong forms of Nautilus make this an excellent display type. The italic weights are independent typefaces with hints of a handwritten character.”
