Uncial

Choose your typeface

Uncial is a style of lettering used from the 4th to 8th centuaries by Latin and Greek scribes. As you can imagine this 2006 BASIN production had it’s work cut out (and a typo meant it was called Unical).

It has an old hand feel to it but not in the soft geometric way that many a Zenobi adventure has. It’s more angular with small capitals taking the place of the odd lower case.

While the text is quite readable and works great for titles the small-caps lower-case can really make large runs of text difficult to scan even if individual letters are easy to identify.
