Indices : Writing Systems : Arabic : Nastaliq, scholarly transcribed as nastaʿlîq

The name is a contraction of the Persian naskh-i taʿlîq which contains the element naskh "to copy a manuscript" and taʿlîq "to slant", connected by the conjunction -i. The name could be paraphrased as "cursive for manuscripts".

Nastaliq is a simplified derivative of historical, pre-typographic naskh. It retains all the connection rules characteristic of pre-typographic Arabic, be it that they are considerably less complex than those of pre-typographic naskh.

Mike Parker

Born in London in 1929, Mike has degrees in architecture and graphic design from Yale. In 1958-59 he was lucky enough to be the person who put in order the punches, matrices and molds at the Plantin Museum. Jackson Burke at Mergenthaler Linotype believed that this experience might be turned to account preparing type libraries for photocomposition machines. Inheriting the design staff originally trained by Chauncey Griffith, Mike managed the expansion of the Linotype library from a collection of 150 American hot metal designs for text-setting to an inclusive library of nearly 1,500 international digital designs for full page setting.

Part of: Indices : Typefaces : Rounded Typefaces

Current URL:

Designed by Joshua Darden
Design and production assistance by Jesse Ragan.

Originally conceived as the brand typeface for a national retail chain, Omnes fulfills the need for a rounded typeface which is neither overly mannered nor excessively literal. A selective approach to rounding adds subtle visual interest, while a large assortment of non-geometric forms pay homage to 19th-century rounded Grotesques which appeared well before the crisp visual style of the Bauhaus.

Indices : Terminology : Terminal : Ball Terminal

A circle-shaped device used to terminate a stroke, for example on the end of the arm on r, or the tail tip of y. Ball terminals are a prominent feature of so-called "modern roman" types which came into existence in the second half of the 18th century with the appearance of Didones and types used by the Fourniers as well as Giambattista Bodoni. Ball terminals are typically drawn in a strict geometric form of a pure circle. Some types however, principally Baskerville's roman type, feature organically-shaped ball terminals.
