Popular in the Middle Ages in Italy, southern France, and the Iberian Peninsula, Rotunda is a rounder, warmer flavor of blackletter styles, celebrated in mediaeval academic circles for its ease of reading.
Akin to the Fraktur release, this book repeats the collaboration with Hugo “Xesta” Moura, the Portuguese graphic artists and calligrapher, extending the historical material to add a contemporary interpretation to the hand.
The book features over 750 real-scale examples of letter variations, ligatures and exercises, making extensive use of notes and building up complexity as it progresses. As worthy extras, the release also features a large set of digital, ready-to-print practice sheets, as well as two screenprint posters designed by Xesta.
