Jabana - a font for menu cards and more. It was developed in 2013 by Nils Thomsen to be his first release at MyFonts. Inspired by having a beer at Hamburgs coffee bars. Super compressed letter shapes, smooth handwritten marker curves and especially a wide range of opentype features define the large character set of Jabana. Jabana is composed of only uppercase letter shapes. Each letter and punctuation got three simple varieties of alternates. This gives a nice looking handwritten nature to the font. They will be randomly chosen by the contextual alternates feature or even by hand via stylistic set (ss01, ss02). The whole characters for serious western european typography comes along Jabana. Beside the standard accented letters, fractions, mathematical glyphs, superiors and inferiors you will find alternates, extra bullets, different arrows, negative figures and roman numerals. Another reason for the amount of 1450 glyphs are the numerator and denominator letters which came from A-Z, punctuation and the extra bullets (ss09-16). They are meant to be used for decoration or distinction. Especially an opentype stylistic set gives an extra touch to it while putting a dot/line above denominators or underneath numerators (ss03+numr/dnom). Naming: Jabana/Jebena is a container used to brew coffee in the Ethiopian, Eritrean and Eastern Sudanese traditional coffee ceremony. It is usually made of pottery and has a spherical base, a neck and pouring spout and a handle where the neck connects with the base.
