29LT Oskura: An eloquent companion to Okaso  

29LT Oskura is the second interpretation of the diverse handwritings found in the Aljamiado manuscripts and works as a fluid alternate to 29LT Okaso. Its humanistic design approach is built on the concept of the progressing pen. It is not rough and grungy as the writings in the manuscript are, but retains the flow of handwriting and presents the letterforms in clean outlines.

Abstracted from handwritten Aljamiado texts, 29LT Okaso is one-of-a-kind typeface: seeking to retain the spirit of the Andalusian Maghribi style, it embodies a free and simplified interpretation that gave birth to unique letterforms and ligatures absent from traditional Arabic calligraphy. These striking characteristics add both legibility and dramatic intensity to this typeface.

 

29LT Oskura exists as a typeface on its own and can act as a companion to 29LT Okaso. In the Latin, it can be used as an upright italic, especially when the stylistic set 3 is activated. In the Arabic, it can be used as the cursive or freehand version of Okaso. A change of typographic voice can be achieved between the two, and interesting typographic combinations can be achieved. The typefaces share common parameters in many respects, such as vertical metrics, general glyph proportions, or weight distribution across the seven styles, making it easy to switch between one and the other within a project.

WHY IT IS A TOP PICK
29LT Okura stands out from standard Arabic fonts, both in aesthetics and functionality. It embodies a fascinating typographical experiment that actually works particularly well when seeking harmonious contrast between enigmatic and mystical overtones and contemporary designs.
