About NaN Weiss

NaN Weiss is a re-imagining and extension of Emil Rudolf Weiß’ Weiss-Kapitale Kräftig through the constraints of a fixed-width frame. In blending the scriptural associations of Weiß’ lettering-turned-font with the cold metronomy of a monospace we arrive at a clash of times and worlds; the humanist and the algorithmic, the religious and the technocratic. The result is warm but jarring, as if we have stumbled across an alien almost-successfully pretending to be human.

The family comes in a collection of 10 distinct weights ranging from a skeletal thin to an overweight extra black. Please see the PDF for more details regarding language support, the complete glyph-set and extended samples.
