A re-imagined inscribed serif typeface based on Basilea, initially made by the designer Markus Low in 1965. The design pays respect to the classical romanesque forms without being overwhelmed by history and steers toward a contemporary aesthetic. Markus Low has a great stroke contrast, producing graceful, fluid lines. The outcome is a modern display serif with subtle chisel-like details best suited for a dramatic impact.

Version 2.0 of the font includes over 600 characters per style and eight weights with matching obliques. Opentype features consist of ten number variations inferiors, superiors, fractions, tabular, lining, case, and old style. Also included are 14 alternative characters, small caps, and language support covering Western, South, and Central Europe.
