Escritura Hebrew was designed by Ricardo Santos and published by Vanarchiv. Escritura Hebrew contains 5 styles and family package options.  

It was my first attempt to drawing a Hebrew alphabet to mach directly with other typeface (Latin) which I already designed. The Latin version is an handwriting display typeface influenced by chancery handwriting from the Italian Renaissance (broad-nib pen). One of the most typographic characteristic is there wavy forms, especially the serifs, where contains some of the main calligraphic references from this font family. The Hebrew script contain reverse contrast, the vertical proportions are more tall and the stroke weight is slightly more strong than latin lowercase to produce a correct visual balance between them, especially on small sizes (text proportions). This Hebrew square book-hand was influenced by Sephardic script style. The Latin characters contains interrupted strokes, the same was made for Hebrew letterforms to transpose correctly the same calligraphic approach between these two different alphabets.

Font Family:
· Escritura Hebrew Regular
· Escritura Hebrew Medium
· Escritura Hebrew Demi Bold
· Escritura Hebrew Bold
· Escritura Hebrew Extra Bold
