About

The idea of Gauge Letterpress was conceived while studying book collection published online by University of Amsterdam, specifically, books published by Jérôme (Hierosme) Haultin in La Rochelle, late 16th century.

Gauge Leterpress reproduces the lively texture of text, found in Haultin’s books. Slight irregularities of lines and shape of each symbol are imitated by an OpenType algorithm, which chooses a glyph option depending on glyph position in text.

Features

Small capitals, case sensitive forms, standard ligatures, proportional lining figures, proportional oldstyle figures, slashed zero, one stylistic set, tabular oldstyle figures

Languages

Afrikaans, Belarusian, Bulgarian, English, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Russian, Serbian, Spain, Ukrainian, Uzbek (lat)
