Memento Mori 1.0r3 Description:

Ancient Roman carvings font.

Memento Mori began as an independent study while the developer was studying graphic design at the University of Kansas. It was designed as a face that would be able to imitate Ancient Roman carvings, but without the feeling of "near perfect" quality that the computer renders. For this, I designed four different but subtle versions of each letterform, which are accessible from the same font to achieve a hand made look. Most people will hardly notice the differences between the letters, but closer examination will reveal the differences: slant, weight, stress, serifs, and widths. There are no lowercase (as the Romans didn't have lowercase), but a Small Caps suitcase has been included. With the small caps, you will be able to create logotypes (the NT and the RI in the title above). Refer to the key chart documentation on how to access all the characters. Additionally, for an example of how this typeface can be used, take a look at the sample image included in this archive. Because of the complexity of this typeface, it should only be used with programs that have kerning abilities. Typing a letter to your mother with Memento Mori on the word processor of your choice will produce horrendous results. This font is happiest when used in programs like FreeHand, Illustrator, or Quark Xpress. Due to the large number of letter combinations, it would be very difficult to make specific kerning pairs.
