Renaissance Revival

Poggius Algorismus is a typeface revival of a fifteenth century manuscript. For now, the font attempts to interpret the ideal letterforms and proportions that this (most likely German) scribe strove to achieve. Later, I hope to create a stroke-based vector lettering app that can render blocks of text that capture some (but not all) of the human variability in the word shapes. In anticipation of this project I have left the entrance and exit strokes of the minuscules at varying angles and intensities.
