DEVELOPER'S NOTE

Since I first published the Xirwena font, I've been so lucky as to discover that the little sample of "Florentine Bastarda", on which its lower case characters are based, stems from a manuscript copy of Dante's Divina Commedia, written in 1337, and commonly referred to as the Codex Trivulziano. The upper case glyphs, on the other hand, have been inspired by German Bastarda writings from various sources; they are no exact matches, though.

There is no number sign in this font. In its place, you'll find a long s. Equally, you'll find a less space-consuming d on the bar sign, as well as ld and ll on the fi and fl keys.
