Type specimens are defined as typographic design that showcases a typeface design and its use. The Soane Sans lower-case were derived from the inscriptional Capitals found on the Lodges at Langley Park in Norfolk - of what is likely the earliest extant example of a sane Inscription. There distinctive bold modelling has been utilised in extending the glyph set 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?
