Jaqen is a contemporary serif with a distinct aesthetic. Learning from historical methods of practice in metal types the design has been developed to improve reading text in modern applications. Initially drafted by hand to help promote a more natural letter shape, the typeface is then digitally produced adding a more angular expression with wedge-shaped forms, open apertures and subtle diagonal stress. The result is a well-balanced serif type family with the right rhythm, harmony and calm personality for creating readable text in the digital era.

Details include 978 characters, six weights with true italics, ten variations of numerals, opentype features nut fractions, stylistic swashes and alternates, ligatures, small caps, chess symbols and language support covering Western, South, Central Europe and Vietnamese.
