Super-extended Bengali

In Bengali by HindiRinny2 Comments

Learn Bengali Yourself by Bidhubusan Dasgupta, 1992

An extremely-extended typeface found in Learn Bengali Yourself. Wow, very interesting! And well done, from what I can tell. What do you think?



  1. Hmmmm. I’ve having a difficult time appreciating this typeface. The letterforms are stretched too wide. How many characters per line could they achieve with this face? It seems like it would take nearly double the number of pages to typeset text in this font.

    Hi Anshuman! Yes this is definitely just for short headlines – chapter titles etc. Really strange that this book chose it to represent Bengali script for new language learners… such stretched and deformed shapes!!
