I must admit that I am not a big fan of the Art Nouveau style. However, I found a particularly beautiful Art Nouveau style alphabet, hand-drawn by Peter Schnorr in about 1898, that I decided to use as the basis for this new font. Samira™ is very graceful, elegant, and dare I say, organic. Includes some intertwined ligatures. Complete uppercase, numerals, basic punctuation. Supports most Western European languages.
