Background

Minuscule is a typeface for extremely small sizes, which could be used under the commonly acknoweledged threshold of legibility (around 7 points). At this stage, the loss is so important during the shift to a lower size that I quickly decided to design a master for each size. Five versions have been developed, optimized for a use in 6 (Minuscule Six), 5 (Minuscule Cinq), 4 (Minuscule Quatre), 3 (Minuscule Trois) and 2 pts (Minuscule Deux).

Minuscule received the Certificate of Excellence in Type Design from the Type Directors Club New-York, in the TDC2 2005 Type Design Competition (category Text). Minuscule is one of the Favourite Typefaces of 2007, selected by Erik Spiekermann on the famous Typographica annual review.
