About Alter Littera
Welcome to Alter Littera - New Letters of Old, a "personal" digital-type foundry located in Madrid, Spain. 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. In the summer of 2012, Alter Littera’s digital types made their debut on MyFonts.
