Orbe is a blackletter font intended to interpret the feel of Portuguese calligraphy. It's name, the portuguese for "orb" or "globe", evokes the enclosed beauty and consistency of shapes that naturally cohere in the calligraphic expression.

With a light and spontaneous feel, it's also exotic with it's flourished details, which makes it a very nice decorative and titling font. The glyphs are a mix of lowercases and uppercases, all aligned at same height, as if the uppercase forms of some letters evolved by speed of gesture to lowercase forms.

Also, it's high contrast and the balanced white spaces result in a pleasant rhythm and a nice texture on longer text settings.
