                      About Skolar Devanagari

                      Originally developed for academic publishing, Skolar asserts credibility and sustains comfortable reading. It has established itself as a go-to choice for all kinds of scholarly texts, no matter the field or school of thought: it handles the minutiae of linguistic, scientific, and editorial typography with ease. A classic with a twist, Skolar brings a trace of human touch to serious typography. Thanks to this knack for subtlety, it is also successfully used in other genres from branding to children’s literature.

                      Skolar Devanagari brings the same time-tested credibility of Skolar to academic and professional settings for Indian languages, equipping typographers to deliver an articulate reading experience in Hindi, Marathi, Nepalese, Sanskrit, and more than 30 regional languages, regardless of the subject matter.

                      The designer of the Devanagari, Vaibhav Singh, researched historical and contemporary letterforms and printing to ensure Skolar Devanagari provides the same combination of serious typographic aptitude and artful personality offered by Skolar in other scripts, but in a design created for Indian typography from the ground up. The forms are grounded in traditional Devanagari type anatomy, but add an energy and vitality of their own, for scholarly, scientific, and editorial uses, whether in print or on screen.

                      With an expansive suite of consonant conjuncts and contextual variations for matras and other marks, the family can tackle novel combinations, transliterated words, and unexpected terminology with ease. The linguistic alternate forms and figures and punctuation carefully fitted to the Devanagari script across the range of weights furnish the typographer with the tools to address the most rigorous scholarly treatise or editorial message in any combination of languages.

                      The companion type families Skolar PE (Latin, Cyrillic, Greek) and Skolar Gujarati provide additional language support for nearly four hundred languages.
