The Unzyale typeface is born from long-term calligraphic experiments with a broad nib pen. Initially started as a modern interpretation of the Unzialschrift, the final alphabet is rather a mix of other traditional handwriting and free forms. The letters are unified by a common angle, balanced proportions and high contrast.
Even though beeing an All Caps font, Unzyale has plenty of glyphs to play around with. Besides fancy ligatures and alternate swash caps, there're diacritics, punctuation and many symbols in an alternative, monolinear style, reducing the calligraphic influence and bringing in a modern vibe.
Although Unzyale is designed purely as a display typeface, it comes in three optical sizes differing in contrast, form and spacing. It can therefore be used in various ways; full-frame or as a graphic pattern, as a headline or punctual highlight, or in smaller sizes next to a neutral text typeface.
Unzyale comes with fancy ligatures, various swash letters and a huge stylistic set: This changes the look of diacritics, punctuation and many symbols from strictly calligraphic shapes to a modern, monolinear style.
Thanks to the coverage of the Latin-Extended-A Unicode range, Unzyale supports most modern Latin languages. Actually, containing some additional accented glyphs, you can use Unzyale in 215 languages. If you still think your language isn't supported, you can look up the full list below or in the specimen.
Unzyale comes with 749 glyphs, covering the Latin Extended-A Unicode Range and various alternate shapes, arrows and dingbats for that high contrast, contemporary feeling.
