The Latin alphabet was used in the earliest Asturian texts. Although the Academia de la Llingua Asturiana published orthographic rules in 1981, different spelling rules are used in Terra de Miranda.The Latin alphabet was used in the earliest Asturian texts.

Acabáronse las vísperas, y la fiesta de Santa Ana, y quedó Preciosa algo cansada; pero tan celebrada de hermosa, de aguda y de discreta, y de bailadora, que a corrillos se hablaba della en toda la Corte. De allí a quince días volvió a Madrid con otras tres muchachas, con sonajas y con un baile nuevo, todas apercebidas de romances y de cantarcillos alegres, pero todos honestos. Pusiéronse a bailar a la sombra en la calle de Toledo, y de los que las venían siguiendo se hizo luego un gran corro; y en tanto que bailaban.Acabáronse las vísperas, y la fiesta de Santa Ana, y quedó Preciosa algo cansada; pero tan celebrada de hermosa, de aguda y de discreta, y de bailadora, que a corrillos se hablaba della en toda la Corte.

Prince John held his high festival in the Castle of Ashby. This was not the same building of which the stately ruins still interest the traveller, and which was erected at a later period by the Lord Hastings, High Chamberlain of England, one of the first victims of the tyranny of Richard the Third, and yet better known as one of Shakspeare’s characters than by his historical fame. The castle and town of Ashby, at this time, belonged to Roger de Quincy.Prince John held his high festival in the Castle of Ashby.

About

Before it actually appeared on Ross’ webpage, Forma DJR managed to go all the way from being a careful revival of the typeface from 1968 designed by Nebiolo studio to a weather forecast on VRT NWS as well as the covers of fancy magazines.

Apart from the original, Forma DJR cares about the fashion for sans serifs with little letter spacing and rounded angles from the 1960s and the 1970s. For these subtleties not to be lost at very large and very small sizes, Forma comes in five optical sizes, from Micro (less than 8pt) to Banner (from 72pt).

Today Forma DJR offers 25 styles (+ a variable font), each coming with a set of Helvetica-style alternates. (After all, in 1968, Forma was created as an answer to Helvetica, among other things). Cyrillic was drawn by Jovana Jocić.
