Littera project is a modern interpretation of one of the most widespread sans serifs in USSR “TextBook font”. It is not an exact revival, but an interpretation of its typographic feel executed in two different ways: Littera Plain and Littera Text.
This font was originally designed for one lettering job with only one simple purpose—to be as much condensed as a font can be.
Then it was developed as a font family of 4 weights with regulars and italics.
Twentytwelve typefaces are the outcome of my project at the Jan van Eyck Academie in 2012.
There're two sets of numbers: lowercase proportional and uppercase tabular (OpenType Stylistic Set 1).
