Seeking for harmony
Thoughts behind the typeface

Livory is friendly and positive, you’ll never find any corners or edges. Instead, each corner is melted softly and carefully. The typeface feels at ease with nature. It is inspired by snaggy forests, mellow meadows, wuthering heights & the season’s changes.

Livory’s endings and serifs are dripping like morning dew, the ligatures underline the smoothness. You will quickly realize Livory’s suppleness in display sizes. Furthermore, the slight contrast between thick and thin parts supports its quality in reading sizes.

The fonts are equipped with a lot of typographic features – besides several nice OpenType features, each style contains fitting small caps and a set of 50 special and standard ligatures.

Let’s take a detailed look into the secrets of Livory.

A closer look into the technique of the fonts and what else you can do with it – besides designing your book.

A font of today’s needs has to include more than just the alphabet and some punctuation. Besides a big number of accented letters, making sure that the typeface has a good language support, a font should include several features for excellent typographic work joining forces with the layout applications of the time and of course the user. Here is a selection of what this font family has to offer under the hood.

Shuffle with my figaro

Ligatures

If two letters have the nature to collide when used in combination a ligature is needed to solve this unwanted event. Ligatures are especially designed solutions for such letter combinations. This font contains a set of ligatures which are automatically substituted as soon as these letter combinations are typed in.

Dictionary

Discretionary Ligatures

Sometimes a typeface contains a set of special designed ligatures which are not made up to solve unwanted collisions but to give a unique connection of certain characters, resulting in a carefulness form of the words. This font family is equipped with a set of discretionary ligatures which can be manually switched on and off with the help of the Opentype features.

Shake It Off!

Small Caps

Small Caps are uppercase characters set at the same height and weight as the lowercase characters or text figures. They are used in text emphasize or typographically differentiate passages beside the italics. Professional designed Small Caps are not simply scaled-down versions of the capital letters – they are designed to work with the lowercase letters and have the same stroke weight.

I read 6/8 or 7/9 of this book

Fractions

If fractions are needed anywhere an OpenType code makes sure that if you type any numbers combined with a slash between a fraction will automatically be substituted.

We write the year 1592

Oldstyle Figures

When lining figures are used in a reading text they often produce a visual stretch in the text and disturb the grey value. It has the same effect if you use ALL CAPS in a text. One solution could be to make the numbers slightly smaller and give them some more space in-between. The other, more elegant way is to use the old style figures, they have ascenders and descenders like the lower case letters and will fit seamlessly in the text.

3511,25

Tabular Figures

In addition to the normal lining figures, the fonts contain a set of tabular figures. This means that all numbers have the same width, which is useful for setting up invoices, tables or every other task where the figures should have a structured appearance among themselves.

C6H12O6

Subscript

A subscript is a character that is set slightly below the normal line of type. They are used in formulas, mathematical expressions, and specifications of chemical compounds and isotopes, but can have many other uses as well. These characters are not simply ordinary characters reduced in size – to keep them visually consistent with the rest of the font, they are slightly heavier than a reduced-size character would be.

The special delivery2

Superscript

A superscript is a character that is set slightly above the line of type. It has the same weight and size like a subscript character. They are also used in formulas, mathematical expressions and text references, but can have many other uses as well.

Ornaments & Extras

Additionally to the letters this font family contains a big set of ornaments, borders, catchwords and symbols fitting to the characteristics of the typeface. The user can combine text and ornament elements keeping a homogenous design language. Here is a small selection:
