Empirical™ font family


Designed by Russell Bean
The Empirical project is the result of more than four years of hard work. The final designs met my requirement of a "simple sans serif "avec" serifs - or "with" serifs with an emphasis on text usage but at home in display sizes too. The italics maintain that look together with a mix of geometric simplicity and cursiveness. An extensive suite of ligatures eliminates hairline gaps that appear at display sizes. In Opentype and Truetype.

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.

Standard Ligatures

Tag: liga

Function: Replaces a sequence of glyphs with a single glyph which is preferred for typographic purposes. This feature covers the ligatures which the designer/manufacturer judges should be used in normal conditions. The glyph for ffl replaces the sequence of glyphs f f l.

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.

These fonts support the Basic Latin character set. Each font is Unicode™ encoded, and available in d
