Frances Uncial is the work of Michael Gills, who gave the font a strong tactile appearance by lino-cutting the forms before scanning them into digital form. The result is a captivating typeface with classic, antique-looking forms. The rough edges of Frances Uncial are best highlighted in larger point sizes yet its legibility is retained in smaller sizes.
Michael Gills developed this Letraset text family under the direction of Letraset Type Director, Colin Brignall. Figural is based on the original 1940 design by Oldrich Menhart, the famous Czechoslovakian calligrapher, type designer and typographer. All of the the original characteristics have been carefully retained in this marvellous, distinguished family of typefaces.
