This typeface is the result of an attempt to modernize DIN, by introducing round smooth corners and distinct design elements to several characters like ‘a, g, k, m’, without compromising legibility. In order to retain its sharpness, inner corners as well as junction points were left steep.

This typeface is the result of an attempt to modernise the characteristics of DIN, by introducing slightly rounded corners and distinct design elements to several characters such as ‘a, g, k, m’, without compromising legibility. In order to retain its sharpness, inner corners as well as junction points were left steep. This is a balanced typeface which performs exceptionally well with long texts at small point sizes. It has a strong welcoming presence and at the same time it feels structured and established enough to carry an international brand. Handbook Pro comes loaded with a number of special features. The family consists of 14 fonts -from black to extra thin including true italics- for complex type requirements. It supports 21 special opentype features like small caps, fractions, ordinals, etc. and offers multilingual support for all European languages including Greek and Cyrillic. There is also a set of very interesting stylistic alternates which can be used to either add a refreshing flair to your design or bring it down to a more conservative level. Finally, every font in this family has been completed with 270 copyright-free symbols, some of which have been proposed by several international organisations for packaging, public areas, environment, transportation, computers, fabric care and urban life.
Ligatures: Replaces a sequence of glyphs with a single glyph, creating a professional-looking text with no peculiar collisions among letters. This feature covers the standard f-ligatures, as well as few other ones used in normal conditions.
Replaces a sequence of glyphs with a single glyph. It differs from the previous feature in the fact that it activates special (non-standard) ligatures for Latin and Greek.
