Escritura

Escritura is a serif and display serif font family. This typeface has twenty styles and was published by Vanarchiv.

Escritura was created for editorial purposes and the letter forms are influenced by chancery handwriting from the Italian Renaissance.
The asymmetrical shapes of the undulating serifs cause the characters to have a large aperture.
Originally designed for display sizes, the typeface also comes in a text variant for small sizes.
With taller vertical proportions, the text version has slightly longer serifs and increased white space between the characters to optimize legibility in small sizes.

Originally designed for display sizes, the typeface also comes in a text variant for small sizes. With taller vertical proportions, the text version has slightly longer serifs and increased white space between the characters to optimize legibility in small sizes. Ascenders and descenders and serifs are shorter in the display version, which has more economical letter spacing resulting in a visually compact text image.

The stress in the letter strokes create varying widths according to their direction, improving the calligraphic rhythm in the characters. The oblique crossbar as well as other typographic details lend the typeface that typical Renaissance atmosphere.
