Rustic Capitals OT Pack
This Single Typeface Pack contains one font: Rustic Capitals OT
Important Note: The full character set can be accessed in any Windows or Macintosh application, but extra functionality is available with OpenType/AAT enabled applications. See advanced type for full details.
Note: this is a Capital Set; it deviates from our standard fonts in that only a single Modern font is provided - no ancient font or lower-case characters exist as these were not in use at the time of the original scripts. However, with these exceptions a complete modern character set is provided, including all punctuation, foreign and accented characters.
Whilst the origins of Rustic Capitals (Capitales Rusticæ) probably predate Written Square Capitals (Quadrata), both hands were mostly in contemporaneous use from the early centuries A.D.. If used for whole documents then it was usually written without wordspacing or punctuation; by the medieval period, its use was restricted to displayed matter. The subtle, sigmoid curves of the oblique strokes have a more calligraphic appearance than quadrata. Note the letters B and F rise above the line.
