Alter Littera

Welcome to Alter Littera - New Letters of Old, a “personal” digital-type foundry located in Madrid, Spain. Alter Littera produces and markets OpenType fonts reviving some of the most beautiful bookhands from medieval Western manuscripts, as well as some of the finest European and North-American typefaces designed from the mid-fifteenth through the early-twentieth centuries.

Alter Littera’s fonts and related products are currently designed, produced and managed by José Alberto Mauricio, Ph.D in Economics and Business Administration, and Associate Professor of Econometrics at the Universidad Complutense de Madrid. As a fully separate activity from regular professional work, this spare-time “typographical adventure” emerged around the summer of 2009 from a personal interest in medieval alphabets and lettering. The hobby developed so deeply in later years that it was believed it might be interesting to release some of its “digital aspects” into the World Wide Web. Eventually, Alter Littera’s website was launched on January 29, 2011. In the summer of 2012, Alter Littera’s digital types made their debut on MyFonts.
