Basalte Fonts Family is composed of 4 styles, Regular, Regular Framed, Fat and Fat Framed. Each one has its own personnality and try to stay in the kufic culture. The 2 fonts without frames have nearly 500 glyphs with 366 ligatures. The 2 framed ones have around 800 glyphes for 366 ligatures too. Once you activate Opentype in your software, you can play with them and see how letters are going to be shaped around to each other.

I have written a whole post about the making of Basalte. Please read it for further details.

Let’s play with Basalte 🙂

From the menu below, you can display each version of Basalte. Please select the style you want to use through the dropdown menu on the right. You can also implement Opentype features using the small OT button and see the magic of interlocks 🙂

To close the frame around the letters, use the keys [ (alt+5) and ] (alt+6) on your keyboard to do the initial and final shape of the frame.

Stay weird my friend
