The new Selene Book typeface takes up the linear, clean although complete in all the froms style of Selene, but introducing three important differences.
The first and most obvious change concerns the lowering of the x-height of the lowercase letters which makes it even more elegant. The shape of the letters has been made closer to a Roman character, note the \b and \g for example.
The second change concerns the italics, again in the lowercase letters, completely redesigned to bring it closer to the typical chancery style that accompanies any of the modern Roman characters.
The third and final change concerns the introduction of four new alternative styles of Latin capital letters (Selene had only one, the third), which start from the basic style, which follows the proportions of a Roman lapidary, passing through the art déco, the art nuveau, up to the modern and contemporary proportions.
