. . .

Design inspired by a baroque etching by Wilhelm Hondius (Hondt). He was a dutch etching artist on the court of the polish king, Władysław IV of the Waza dynasty. The characteristic flourishes reference the decorative copper etching style created with a stylus. The uppercase, ascenders, and descenders, shaped as spiral ornaments are an embodiement of the baroque style, which in the book arts realm often based the decorative elements on the world of plants. The typeface also contains a non-ornamental uppercase, which alows to typeset for instance Latin numerals.
