Background

The font series Andron MC introduces a new feature to the repertoire of the Andron family: middlecase glyphs (intermediate between upper- and lowercase) and uncial letters. Middlecase glyphs reach a medium height compared to full caps height and lowercase x-height. However, ‘uncial’ means the historic transitional lettershapes of the medieval ages which have gained no status in the bicameral typographic system of modern times.
In all three of the Andron MC fonts middlecase (“MC”) glyphs dwell on the lowercase positions. These are coined in uncial fashion in the MC Uncial and MC Medieval fonts but appear as Roman glyphs in MC Capital. The same variation occurs with the uppercase positions: whereas standard Roman glyphs are there in MC Uncial and MC Capital, MC Medieval features uncial majuscules instead. At the end that makes three different combinations of uncial and roman sorts.
