Sahitya is a Devanagari typeface family based on the Latin Alegreya fonts. It was designed to match the style and feel of the original Latin characters. Juan Pablo del Peral designed the Latin, and led the design of the Devanagari with Sol Matas.

Thanks to Erin McLaughlin, Vaishnavi Murthyand, Noopur Datye, Dan Reynolds and José Nicolás Silva for their support and feedback.

The Sahitya project is led by Juan Pablo del Peral, a type designer based in Argentina. To contribute, see github.com/juandelperal/sahitya
