    Omnia Roman
    Between the 3rd and the 9th centuries, calligraphers showed a marked preference for plain, curved capitals. Holding the quill at an angle allowed for a swift writing movement. Omnia is the modern combination of the Classical Roman monumental capitals and Roman cursive hands.

    Omnia's handwritten forms leads to line lengths that are longer than those set in more traditional text faces. The design is therefore ideal for shorter passages of text. Especially when used as a headline face for certificates, diplomas, or posters, Omnia evokes a ceremonial character.

    The German calligrapher Karlgeorg Hoefer created Omnia in 1990 for Linotype's Type Before Gutenberg collection, which included the work of twelve contemporary designers representing writing style styles popular in Europe prior to 1450.
