Welcome to the wonderful world of small small letters! Although they are less used in the outside presentation to the uninitiated, these beauties are the true lore of Minima.

Hypercompressed into only the most essential elements of form, their data density is immense, with a fairly high bit error tolerance and great resistivity against any kind of physical degradation.

For the small a, Minima exploits the occasional presence of the letter's upper arch. This stroke is completely unique among regular letters, so there is no need to display anything else to fully convey an 'a'. Obviously, this is only feasible under certain conditions – if all glyphs follow very similar rules, and if the arch is as black as it is.
