The motivation for this typeface came from the epigraph on a frame of a 19th century painting. I was interested by the peculiar capitals of the inscription. The high contrast, and the total quirkiness, particularly the tail of the R and the oblique stems on the M, was fascinating. I decided to draw a display font style with high contrast and a vertical axis, in a referral to the transitional kind. Still I desired to catch the spirit of the initial letters, which to me are so imbued with Romanticism. This technique permitted some exuberance on the routine design, but also caused more calligraphic letterforms in the italic-- in which "the flow of the curves" blaze a trail. To contribute to this epigraphic nature there is a number of ornaments that accompany words appropriately to their uppercase or lowercase type. For adaptability there's likewise an excellent quantity of ligatures, alternative glyphs, and a special set of ornamental numbers.
