Tulika is a text typeface inspired by traditional Bengali calligraphy. It features distinctive, sinuous shapes and a high contrast between thick and thin strokes. Bengali is one of the most complex Indic scripts, requiring the design of over 700 glyphs for each of Tulika’s 5 styles.
Extensive research was done before defining the character set which included support for Assamese, Bengali, Bishnupriya Manipuri, Garo, Kokborok, Meitei, and Mundari languages. Tulika is a set of Unicode fonts suitable for setting books, magazines, newspapers and any other material which can benefit from its five weights and high legibility at small point sizes.
