Figural is one of the most beautiful book typefaces of the 20th century. In its design, Menhart masterfully succeeded in applying refined calligraphic principles to a functional set of characters.
Figural Romana is a dynamic antiqua loosely based on historical Renaissance antiquas. Flat serifs without instrokes, often set in a slightly angled direction, are specific to Figural. Its calligraphic approach determines not only the way the main and secondary strokes alternate on a left-inclined letter axis, as well as the differentiated width proportions of individual letterforms. What’s remarkable is the carefully balanced bent shape of the stems, thinned in the middle parts and modeled by an energetic pen stroke. These barely visible irregularities lend life and strength to its letterform drawings. With their help, the letterforms’ outlines are stretched, and the drawing of the type gets a gentle rhythm and cadence, one which can never be achieved with a ruler or compass. The long ascenders and descenders and the relatively low x-height are also distinctive. Figural achieves an unusual dynamism and shape flexibility by idiosyncratically breaking the letterforms’ curved strokes. Also worth noting is the typical trailing placement of the dot above the i and j, hearkening back to Renaissance morphology.

in medicine. In the nondestructive testing of products and structures, ultrasound
is used to detect invisible flaws. Industrially, ultrasound is used for cleaning,
mixing, and accelerating chemical processes. Animals such as bats and porpoises
use ultrasound for locating prey and obstacles.
