Background

Based on the original 1801 rendition by Fermin Didot which features a thick-thin circumflex, an unusual coat-hanger cedilla, leaf-like tail of the ‘Q.’ strange, little number ‘2’ , and a distinctive and awkward double-v (w).

HiH has included variations of the upper and lower case ‘w’ which is slightly more conventional than the original Fermin designs.
