About this font family
Chinoise, a CastleType original, is based on hand lettering that is reminiscent of a style of ancient Chinese square-cut ideograms (perhaps cut in wood), and therefore the suggestive name “Chinoise” for this new design.
There are alternate forms for each letter in the lowercase. Although square-cut, all corners of the letters are slightly rounded to give a more organic, weather-worn look.
Uppercase only with support for most European languages, including modern Greek, and languages that use the Cyrillic alphabet.
