American Uncial™ Familia tipográfica

Diseñado por Victor Hammer/1953
The Austrian designer Victor Hammer (1882-1967) created the American Uncial typeface while he was living in the United States during the 1940s. This typeface is similar to Neue Hammer Unziale, although Neue Hammer Unziale is actually a later re-release of this design.

American Uncial is a unicase design. The upper and lowercase letters have the same design, and are the same size.

Victor Hammer released his first Uncial-style typeface with the Klingspor Foundry in Germany in 1923. This was called Hammerschrift." During the 1930s, he moved to the United States, where American Uncial would be released, through the Dearborn Type Foundry. In 1953, the Victor Hammer released another version of American Uncial with his old distributor, the Klingspor Foundry. They renamed the type Neue Hammer Unziale. Neue Hammer Unziale is not unicase; it has Roman uppercase letters as well as lowercase Uncials. Linotype also has this typeface available; its Neue Hammer Unziale comes in two versions, each with a slightly different Lowercase (Neue Hammer Unziale II is basically the lowercase letters of American Uncial with the uppercase from Neue Hammer Unziale I).

The Uncial letterform was used across Europe during the time of the late Roman Empire, and thereafter as well. Its forms would inspire the Carolingian Miniscule (c. 800 A.D.), and our present lowercase. American Uncial is one of the most popular Uncial fonts in the world. It is often seen in Ireland and elsewhere for things that should look "Irish" or "Celtic." It is also a favorite for use on certificates and diplomas. The font is best used in headlines and shorter texts with a point size of 12 or larger."

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.


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).


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.

Discretionary Ligatures

Tag: dlig

Function: Replaces a sequence of glyphs with a single glyph which is preferred for typographic purposes. This feature covers those ligatures which may be used for special effect, at the user's preference. The glyph for ct replaces the sequence of glyphs c t, or U+322E (Kanji ligature for "Friday") replaces the sequence U+91D1 U+66DC U+65E5.
