Medievalist creates new typography to honour 1000th anniversary of the Kingdom of Leon

Ricardo Chao, a Spanish medievalist has created a new typography to honour the one thousandth anniversary of the creation of the Kingdom of León. The typography is based on documents from the royal chancillery of Fernando II and Alfonso IX of León.

The Kingdom of León was an independent kingdom situated in the northwest region of the Iberian Peninsula. It was founded in 910 AD when the Christian princes of Asturias along the northern coast of the peninsula shifted their main seat from Oviedo to the city of León.
