An ornamental japonism typefamily with24 fonts and more than 30.000 ligatures.
The Nihon typefamily builds the bridge between the western and eastern typography and allows you to write and read in latin letters with an japanese appearance.
All latin letters were abstracted and completely new designed following the visual language of the traditional japanese Inkan-Seals which have been arround for more than 1500 years. They were used as official signatures for papers, artworks or the traditional Ukiyo-e woodblock prints.
To adapt the elegance and diversity of the japanese typography, each letter will adjust its look depending on the next letter following. To make this possible, Nihon has access to a glyph library of more than 1200 ligatures for each font.
