Anglecia Pro font
Anglecia Pro font by Andriy Konstantynov (Mint Type foundry) is an elegant, complete and versatile font system of three transitional Serif typefaces designed to work together in editorial design. All the three in the Anglecia Pro font family (Anglecia Pro Text, Anglecia Pro Title, and Anglecia Pro Display) share the same structure, vertical axis, and trapezoidal serifs. Each of them has distinctive key dimensions and different contrast, typical for three different typography epochs. The three typefaces are presented in five to seven different weights, plus their corresponding italics, thus forming a 36 separate options in the crowded Anglecia Pro font family.
Anglecia Pro Text font is aimed to general typesetting purposes in average reading sizes. Although it features a vertical axis, its soft skeleton, relatively small x-height and prominent ascenders and descenders give the typesetting a traditional mild body with a subtle contemporary touch.
Anglecia Pro Title incorporates proportions of familiar transitional serif typefaces but exposes higher-than-average vertical contrast which makes it useful for setting captions, pull quotes or general purpose text in sizes of 12 pt and above.
Anglecia Pro Display, still having non-rectangular serifs and the same mild structure as the rest in the Anglecia Pro system, features extreme contrast, much thinner serifs and exaggerated ball terminals typical for Didone modern serif families. Its large x-height and tighter letter spacing suggests larger text sizes being the perfect tool for decorative headlines, extra large pull quotes or logos.
Each of the 36 Anglecia Pro font family’s styles supports numerous Latin-based languages as well as major Cyrillic languages. In roman styles the Cyrillic script comes in two flavours accessible via OpenType alternates – to choose either more traditional and curvy (default) or more formal and rigid pattern. In italics this feature affects uppercase and small caps. Also, each style is packed with OpenType features like ligatures, small caps, six sets of digits, superiors and inferiors, fractions, ordinals, and respective punctuation varieties including all-cap punctuation. There are also language-specific alternates for Polish kreska, Romanian Ș/ș, Catalan punt volat, and correct small-cap versions for Turkish/Azerbaijani i/ı.
Andriy Konstantynov is an independent type-designer from Kiev, Ukraine. He has been a practising web-designer since 1998. Living in Ukraine, where all the major languages use the Cyrillic script, the main priority in font development is the creation of multi-language typefaces that must contain the Cyrillic character set. Andriy’s font foundry is called Mint Type. Check also Pancetta Serif Pro font, Espuma Pro Regular font.
