Type specimens are defined as typographic design that showcases a typeface design and its use. The Soane Sans Capitals were revived from observed drawings and photographs of the Lodges at Langley Park in Norfolk - of what is likely the earliest extant example of a sane Inscription. There distinctive bold modelling and subtle curl to the ‘J’ that respects the classical Latin alphabet 'I' - have initiated the design of the full font ETRVSCA. The research and development of Soane Sans was presented and explained at ATypI18 Antwerp in September 2018. Research Question(s): How will engaging in practice-based research inform the development of a new primal sans typeface, leading to new insights into the context of the serif-less letterforms of the eighteenth-century?
