Designed by Francesco Canovaro part of Singularities SET Version 1.0.1 / released in 2022
With Debora Manetti
Francesco Canovaro was inspired for the design of Quenta by the discovery of the handlettered masthead of Queenslander, a weekly magazine of news related to "society, sport, literature, theater and rural life", published in Queensland, Australia, during the first half of XIX century. The condensed serif letterforms of the magazine title, embellished by a highlight effect, had been complemented by a vibrant cursive script. It was an eye catching combination typical of the so called "showcard" lettering style, widely used in advertising during the first half of last century. Looking for  SHOW ALL

Francesco Canovaro was inspired for the design of Quenta by the discovery of the handlettered masthead of Queenslander, a weekly magazine of news related to "society, sport, literature, theater and rural life", published in Queensland, Australia, during the first half of XIX century.

The condensed serif letterforms of the magazine title, embellished by a highlight effect, had been complemented by a vibrant cursive script. It was an eye catching combination typical of the so called "showcard" lettering style, widely used in advertising during the first half of last century. Looking for the same vintage vibes, Francesco's research moved to the books by penmasters like Ross F. George or Samuel Weld. In their showcard manuals, he found a peculiar ambiguity in the letterform treatments, halfway between calligraphic execution and contour drawing.

This warm, human touch and the historical references gave the condensed shapes of Quenta a lively personality and a literary charme. To match a design so rich in vintage storytelling, Francesco choose for the typeface a name that comes from the writings of one of the master world-builders of the last century. "Quenta" is the Elven word for "story" used by J.R.R. Tolkien in the Silmarillion. To let you experiment with his vintage decorative layers, Quenta comes in five styles and different color font formats. It also includes Discretionary ligatures to allow you to use script elements to enrich its expressive range for editorial and logo design.

The European languages are members of the same family. Their separate existence is a myth. For science, music, sport, etc, Europe uses the same vocabulary.

Quenta Headline

The languages only differ in their grammar, their pronunciation and their most common words. Everyone realizes why a new common language would be desirable: one could refuse to pay expensive translators. To achieve this, it would be necessary to have uniform grammar, pronunciation and more common words. If several languages coalesce, the grammar of the resulting language is more simple and regular than that of the individual languages. The new common language will be more simple and regular than the existing European languages. It will be as simple as Occidental; in fact, it will be Occidental. To an English person, it will seem like simplified English, as a skeptical Cambridge friend of mine told me what Occidental is. The European languages are members of the same family.
