Octant is a display screen serif font household. This typeface has 2 styles and was published by Catharsis Fonts.

Octant is an initial display typeface drawing motivation from Victorian-age steel and brass engineering, along with from blackletter typography. Regardless of its numerous ingenious departures from standard letter architecture at the information level, its general shape is based on the familiar timeless proportions of humanist serif tradition, which renders it easily legible.

While Octant shines in display screen roles, it likewise performs well in brief texts such as poetry or block quotes. Apart from serving as a fresh option to blackletter, it evokes hand-crafted metalwork, daring accomplishments of engineering and innovation, and daring journeys on airships and sailboats. Thanks to its distinct and unmistakable appearance, it delivers a memorable effect in any role.

Octant includes extensive language support and a generous collection of ligatures. For ease of usage in typographically unsavvy applications (such as PowerPoint), the circulation includes an alternate version of the font style (" Octant Ligatures") in which all ligatures are encoded as basic instead of discretionary.
