About BetterIngriana Font Family

In the 1990s Adobe’s MultipleMaster technology introduced interpolation into font editing programs. Though the obvious use of interpolation was to create an unlimited number of weights for a font, interpolation could also be used to crossbreed two completely different typefaces. BetterIngriana is the result of such crossbreeding, the offspring of two very different parents. BetterTypeRight has little contrast and large, round serifs while Ingriana is a relaxed, informal typeface. BetterIngriana was constructed in 1995-6; updates in 2012 and 2020 cleaned up many of the remaining oddities that resulted when parts of the parent fonts clashed. The family retains some peculiarities from the method of its construction but is highly readable as text.

The BetterIngriana family has six styles: regular, semibold, bold, italic, and semibold italic and bold italic.

About Ingrimayne Type

IngrimayneType distributes digital typefaces designed by Robert Schenk. Robert became fascinated with type design in the late 1980s and began designing type in 1988 with an early version of Fontographer. He has designed a wide variety of typefaces, from standard text fonts to bizarre decorative faces. Many of these faces were designed to meet specific needs but others were experimental, designed as a challenge to form letters that met a narrowly-defined criteria. Areas of special strength in the IngrimayneType library include novelty fonts, picture fonts including tessellations, and fonts with alternating character sets.
