About Vesper Libre

Creator:

License: SIL Open Font License, 1.1

Vesper has a classical foundation, but with an entirely modern appearance, making reading comfortable, but never boring.

Vesper's Devanagari design was started by Rob Keller in 2006 and inspired Vesper's Latin letterforms. This process was featured in a I Love Typography article in 2009. The Devanagari character set was completed in 2014 through a collaboration with Kimya Gandhi.

Vesper Libre is a special web version that has been optimized for online use. Tiny details have been simplified and the character set is reduced for the perfect balance of beautiful web typography with fast page loading.

The Vesper Libre project is led by Mota Italic, a type design foundry based in Mumbai, India. To contribute, see github.com/motaitalic/vesper-libre
