Default Fedra Sans Pro, complex OT font

News of an expansive new OpenType font from type designer Peter Bil’ak (of Dot Dot Dot magazine). You can see the font, designed for both print and web use, at his Typotheque site.

FEDRA SANS PRO, a multilingual OpenType family covering over 70 languages including Greek polytonic and Cyrillic based languages (with their small caps). A PDF specimen is available so you can see how Fedra Sans looks in Maltese, Greek, Russian, Ukrainian, or more exotic languages such as Balkar or Kabardian. Included are sample files presenting all the weights and four sizes of the font, in all suppported languages (more than 10,000 Fedra Sans images).

Also shown at the site is Fedra Sans Alt.

“These OpenType fonts are available in two different character sets: Pro (1.669 glyphs per font) and Std (1.034 glyphs per font). Both sets offer advanced typographic features (Fractions, Superior Inferior letters and numbers, Case-sensitive forms, Small capitals, 6 different styles of numerals, Standard ligatures, Discretionary ligatures, Ornaments, Localized forms, etc.) Fedra Sans Std supports all Latin-based European languages, and in addition to this Fedra Sans Pro supports also Greek and Cyrillic.”

There is much more at the site, including articles on type, typography, graphic design, and more by many writers, and a shop with books and t-shirts.
