Irma is an elegant capital-only display typeface in 9 weights that is available in simple Sans & geometric Slab. Irma includes over 200 discretionary ligatures in each style to make the setting of text even more compact and unique. The round characters of Irma, such as O, C and G, have no overshoots (the degree to which the highest and lowest points exceed the flat baseline to achieve the optical effect of being the same size), which allows setting text with no space between the lines, as all letters are equally tall.
Both Sans and Slab version include 9 weights.
Inspired by the principles of the Arabic alphabet, Irma provides different conditional letterforms, depending on whether characters occur at the beginning, middle, or the end of the word. Letters can have four different forms (initial, medial, final and isolated). The choice of these forms is controlled by a powerful OpenType feature (Stylistic Set 1), which allows creation of typographic patterns using the negative spaces of the letterforms.
