Hernani is an exploration into italic forms and uses, started during my research course at ANRT. Its two styles each borrow both from the roman and italic repertoire, into slope and curviness, to offer a couple of text typefaces that are independent and a perfect fit for each other. The distinction is subtle and switching between the styles within the text provides an unexpected reading experience. The Cursive and the Slanted share a general flat-nib structure inspired by the French Renaissance, but their details diverge from each other, introducing respectively some brush-like or pointed-nib forms.
