ABOUT







Felice Feliciano

Born in Verona, 1433, died in Rome in 1479. Fifteenth century calligrapher, composer of alchemical sonnets, and expert on Roman antiquity, especially inscriptions on stone. Author of a geometrically constructed compass-and-ruler roman capitals alphabet in Alphabetum Romanum (1463). About these letters, he wrote: I, Felice Feliciano, have revived this in the antique manner after ancient marble tablets such as are to be found in Rome and elsewhere. People credit him with the first ruler-and-compass construction of letterforms.

Typefaces that are based on his original from 1463 include Monotype's Felix Titling (1934). Berry, Johnson and Jaspert write: A titling based on the inscriptional letters designed by Felice Feliciano of Verona in 1463. The manuscript is in the Vatican Library and was reproduced in the Italian periodical La Bibliofilia in 1935 and in an edition by Dr. Giovanni Mardersteig entitled Alphabetum Romanum published in 1960 at Verona. Note the angle of stress in the O and the open bowl of the P.
