A tiny pixel font for many languages

Minima may appear small in size but it is also a big professional font with a large repertoire. Besides uppercase and lowercase letters, digits, typographic elements and flourishes needed to compute neat looking text in English, Minima features a deeply-rooted support for many other languages of the world. Even unusual forms are included for nearly every letter that is based on Latin script.
