In its most general sense, the term ‘world’ refers to the totality of entities, to the whole of reality or to everything that is. The nature of the world has been conceptualized differently in different fields. Some conceptions see the world as unique while others talk of a ‘plurality of worlds’. Some treat the world as one simple object while others analyze the world as a complex made up of many parts. In scientific cosmology the world or universe is commonly defined as ’the totality of all space and time; all that is, has been, and will be’. Theories of modality, on the other hand, talk of possible worlds as complete and consistent ways how things could have been. Phenomenology, starting from the horizon of co-given objects present in the periphery of every experience, defines the world as the biggest horizon or the ‘horizon of all horizons’. In philosophy of mind, the world is commonly contrasted with the mind as that which is represented by the mind. Theology conceptualizes the world in relation to God, for example, as God’s creation, as identical to God or as the two being interdependent. In religions, there is often a tendency to downgrade the material or sensory world in favor of a spiritual world to be sought through religious practice. A comprehensive representation of the world and our place in it, as is commonly found in religions, is known as a worldview. Cosmogony is the field that studies the origin or creation of the world while eschatology refers to the science or doctrine of the last things or of the end of the world.

Design Concept

Plotter is a massive type family that explores the world of technical drawings and architectural plans. Each subfamily reflects the characteristics of the various tools that inspired the project, tools from an age when technical diagrams were drawn and lettered by hand, and draftsmen needed a simple, efficient way to produce legible text that met established norms. Plotter has the simplified monolinear strokes with round terminals produced by technical pens, its letters reduced to their most basic stencilform elements: stems, arms, curves and diagonals.

Plotter, Design Concept

Plotter Super Family

The family consists of two main versions: Plotter, using round curves, and Plotter Liner which restricts itself to straight segments for rendering curves. Both subfamilies contain a Basic version, Monospaced, Stencil, Monospaced Stencil, and Display version with five filler layers. Separately there is also a Plotter Hand, with irregular shapes resulting from the manual use of architectural stencils, and Plotter Wave, a smart letter substitution version which contextually orders letter-shapes according to the angle of slope. All in all, there are 47 fonts available either as 12 separate packages or all together as Plotter Suite.

Slanted styles

While many scribing devices produced letters are often inclined, Plotter’s upright forms can be inclined mathematically to any angle, including backslants. The playful Plotter Wave, Djurek’s latest exploration of smart OpenType substitution, shows this off to great effect, creating words with an unusual rhythm and structure as the letters progress from extreme backslant to extreme right slant.

Five layers, Many possibilities

Plotter Liner Display comes with five layers with identical horizontal and vertical proportions, so they can be easily combined, and superimposed, for decorative purposes.

  • a

    Single storey `a`


    Alternative version of the lower case letter ‘a’, including its accented variants.
  • I

    Serifless capital `I`


    This stylistic set replaces capital ‘I’ by the version without serifs, including all of its accented variants.
  • (H:

    Case Sensitive Forms


    When the ‘change to caps’ function is applied from within an application (not when text is typed in caps) appropriate case-sensitive forms are automatically applied. Regular brackets, parenthesis, dashes and hyphens are replaced with their capital forms.
  • (1)

    Circled numerals and arrows


    The discretionary ligature feature creates real arrows when you type the combination -> (right arrow), <- (left arrow), -^ (up arrow) or ^- (down arrow). It also creates enclosed numerals when you type numerals inside parenthesis, and inverse enclosed numerals when you type numerals inside brackets. Discretionary ligatures are off by default in Adobe applications.

    Tabular Lining Figures

    lnum + tnum

    Tabular figures are for use in tables where numerals need to be aligned vertically. Tabular figures are available as a OpenType feature and have a fixed width in all weights. Typotheque fonts include both Lining and Old-style Tabular figures.
  • 2/9

    Arbitrary Fractions


    Typotheque OpenType fonts already include a number of pre-designed diagonal fractions. The fraction feature allows you to create other fractions quickly and easily.
  • H1



    Replaces all styles of figures (old style, tabular, lining) and letters with their superior alternates, which can be used for footnotes, formulas, etc. Superior characters are more legible than mathematically scaled characters, have a similar stroke weight, are spaced more generously, and better complement the rest of the text.
  • H1



    Replaces all styles of figures (old style, tabular, lining) and letters with their inferior alternates, used primarily for mathematical or chemical notation. Inferior characters are more legible than mathematically scaled characters, have a similar stroke weight, are spaced more generously, and better complement the rest of the text
