Omnia™ font family


Designed by Karlgeorg Hoefer in 1990
Between the 3rd and the 9th centuries, calligraphers showed a marked preference for plain, curved capitals. Holding the quill at an angle allowed for a swift writing movement. Omnia is the modern combination of the Classical Roman monumental capitals and Roman cursive hands.

Omnia's handwritten forms leads to line lengths that are longer than those set in more traditional text faces. The design is therefore ideal for shorter passages of text. Especially when used as a headline face for certificates, diplomas, or posters, Omnia evokes a ceremonial character.

The German calligrapher Karlgeorg Hoefer created Omnia in 1990 for Linotype's Type Before Gutenberg collection, which included the work of twelve contemporary designers representing writing style styles popular in Europe prior to 1450."

Fractions

Tag: frac

Function: Replaces figures separated by a slash with 'common' (diagonal) fractions. The user enters 3/4 in a recipe and gets the threequarters fraction.

Ordinals

Tag: ordn

Function: Replaces default alphabetic glyphs with the corresponding ordinal forms for use after figures. One exception to the follows-a-figure rule is the numero character (U+2116), which is actually a ligature substitution, but is best accessed through this feature. The user applies this feature to turn 2.o into 2.o (abbreviation for secundo).

Superscript

Tag: sups

Function: Replaces lining or oldstyle figures with superior figures (primarily for footnote indication), and replaces lowercase letters with superior letters (primarily for abbreviated French titles). The application can use this feature to automatically access the superior figures (more legible than scaled figures) for footnotes, or the user can apply it to Mssr to get the classic form.
