Pater Noster in Use

Posted on 31 August 2006 in:

When I was a student at the HfG in Offenbach, I began working on an uncial typeface that I named Pater Noster. After developing the initial alphanumeric characters, I put it aside for other, better things.

A few months ago, I received a delightful e-mail from an eccumenical publishing house, which inquired where the font was distributed. Since I never completed the design, it isn’t for sale anywhere. Flattered, I tweaked the letters for a day or so, and sent the publishers a beta version for use on one of their book-covers.

They did end up using the font after all, and I think that the book looks great. The book is available for sale via the Paraclete Press website.

Pater Noster in Use

Pater Noster is, of course, the uncial type above the cross, not the Optima at the bottom of the cover.
