Viktor Solt-Bittner began FF Danubia with a study of typefaces from the 18th century. He experimented with the typical elements of neoclassical type – like the abrupt changes in contrast from hairlines to thicker strokes – developing them further, and redrawing them. At times, he departed from these models, for example while defining the basic italic forms. The lower case letters s, v, w, and x are actually uppercase letters whose forms have simply been reduced in size. FF Danubia works for both body and display text of some size. Individual details hardly noticeable in small sizes become more evident set large, thereby expressing FF Danubia’s character. Since the Renaissance, the form of our italic typefaces has been based on handwriting styles from the 16th century, and earlier. While handwriting has changed considerably over time, our italics have not. Viktor designed FF Danubia Script as a ready alternative, primarily for display use, based on 18th century types like the other FF Danubia fonts.
