HANTIN B Type Specimen
Nov 2017

HANTIN is a hybrid modular typeface that combines of Hangul and Latin letter forms and writing systems. This typeface enables a reader to understand Latin phonetic sounds without needing to study English beforehand. Conversely, the typeface also allows a reader to understand Korean phonetic sounds without the need to study Korean.

This is HANTIN B type specimen book. HANTIN B writes both alphabets in the linear Latin writing system. In this way, Korean speakers can read Latin letters. In HANTIN B, the phonetic sounds that are represented by specific Latin letters are matched with corresponding sounds in the Korean alphabet. Each letterform in the HANTIN B alphabet is then created by overlaying the two glyphs that share phonetic sounds.
