The titles struck me as handsome°™the titles and captions and place labels on a page I have of Henri Abraham Chatelain's "Atlas Historique"°™and I felt compelled to digitize this legible, early-18th-century roman hand. The letterforms are strong and handsome. They've got a certain deft, organic character. A personality. I can't fully explain it. But this antique alphabet seems suitable for many applications. Antiquarian is a full-featured font that works well with Antiquarian Scribe (which is modeled after the neat, slanted penmanship used in the body text of Chatelain's famous old world atlas). The font has more than 1,000 glyphs, including true small caps, many historical ligatures, both lining and old-style figures, and alternate ornamental caps, as well as Greek and Central/Eastern European alphabets.
