What is the Shinano font?
Shinano is an old province of Japan. Kobayashi Issa (1763 – 1828), a famous Japanese Haiku poet and Buddhist priest, was born here. Together with Bashō he is my favourite Haiku poet. Shinano font was hand made using a Japanese brush pen. At first glance it may look like a messy script, but underneath its rough appearance beats a poetic heart.
Comes with some alternates and ligatures and a whole lot of diacritics.
