About this font family
Jabana Alt is Jabana’s slightly less crazy sibling. Inspired by having a ’Schorle’ in Hamburg’s coffee bars, Jabana Alt’s smooth handwritten marker curves come in 20 styles across 5 widths: from the super-compressed to the extended.
A particularly wide range of OpenType features define Jabana Alt. Each letter, numeral and punctuation mark has three alternates and after being randomly picked by the Contextual Alternates OpenType feature (or accessed via stylistic sets ss01, ss02) they ensure text set in Jabana Alt has a lively, handwritten appearance.

But Jabana Alt doesn’t stop there: it comes with the character set to deliver serious European typography. Alongside standard accented letters, fractions, mathematical glyphs, superiors and inferiors, you will find alternates, extra bullets, different arrows, negative figures and roman numerals. For decoration or distinction, there are extra bullets and a numerator and denominator sets that include the full A-Z, their own punctuation and can stand alone, atop a dot or a line.
If Jabana Alt is a bit too sedate for your purpose, have a look at Jabana: its smaller x-height, crazier forms and lengthy descenders might be your cup of coffee.
And, if you need some fancy designs try Jabana Extras as a sweetener.
