Engebrechtre

Engebrechtre is a gonzo-historical early 20th Century stressed sans created in 2000. The original Engebrechtre Regular was pretty passable, I guess, but the bold and expanded styles were clearly beyond my technical abilities a dozen years ago. This time. I scrapped all but the regular weight and started all over. There’s new spacing, new kerning and web-friendly horizontal precision. The original S was a bit clunky so I’ve drawn the new one with a bit more grace. Accents have been redesigned and more languages are supported. The italics have round dots, not slanted dots . . . a detail I’d missed in the previous version. There are more math symbols, fractions and numeric ordinals too. There’s a new @ symbol as well as the new Indian rupee symbol. Vertical metrics have been optimized for better web performance.
