It started analogous with only a few rubber stamps and finally it was digital 776 glyphs. With 4 × A–Z, 4 × 0–9, 4 × a–z and many other alternative glyphs like @. Plus modern OpenType Features like contextual alternates (automatic generated loop for letter variation). The different variations from the dynamic pressure by hand intended to show the hand-made nature and creates a liveliness in the display font.
