Alefbet specimen

About

Alefbet is a reimagination of the Phoenician alphabet. The original symbols — probably derived from ancient egypt hieroglyphs are used as a starting point but typographic features developed since then are applied to the skeleton. Vertical metrics like a baseline, ascenders and descenders are introduced and serifs are added on some characters. Instead of almost monolinear strokes caused by incising the letters with a stylus a broad nib contrast is applied throughout the font. Since the Phoenician alphabet only consisted of 22 consonants the missing letters of the modern latin alphabet are build according to how they probably derived. Though not really intended to be used for setting text it is nevertheless interesting to see what hypothetical development the latin alphabet could have taken.
