Deccan Telugu is the Indian Type Foundry’s first retail release for the Telugu script. This family – designed by Ramakrishna Saiteja – offers five fonts ranging in weight from Light through Bold; each contains 719 glyphs, including the many conjuncts and ligatures necessary for proper Telugu shaping. Deccan Telugu is a text design. Like the traditional typefaces that have been used in the design of text-heavy Telugu documents for decades, Deccan Telugu’s forms feature a strong vertical contrast. The sides of the characters tend to be drawn with rather thin hairlines, while the curves on the bottom portions of the base characters are gracefully curved and feature heavy swelling. While this amount of contrast is to be expected in the Bold weight, Saiteja has brought it in every style excellently, including the Light.
