AboutAustralSlab → Austral Slab is a hand-drawn layered type family with distinctive textures. It is casual, robust, and spirited. It is monolinear in spirit, despite having irregular stems that give the fonts an eroded effect (particularly exaggerated in the Regular styles).
It comes in three weights, Thin, Light, and Regular, which all share the same crooked structure with bent strokes and irregular outlines.
The textures available are Blur, Rough, Rust, and Stamp, and the layered styles are Maplines and Spots.
'Blur' is a softened style with round and heavy swelling at intersections. 'Rough' has solid irregular contours. 'Rust' has a deteriorated texture over the glyphs. 'Stamp' has the appearance of a print that didn't get enough ink. 'Maplines' is uniquely filled with topographic map-like lines. 'Spots' is a granular style that can be layered.
Austral Slab has three sets of alphabets that slightly differ. These sequentially alternate to avoid repeating the same textured letterforms, having a more realistic irregular result. The Contextual Alternates feature is available in all the styles of this type family.
Some Austral Slab's features are Ligatures, Discretionary Ligatures, Stylistic Alternates, numerators, fractions, arrows, and a glyph coverage that ensures extended language support.
