Nusrat is a sophisticated calligraphy handwritten font that was designed and published by Indian Type Foundry. Its suave appearance is instantly apparent, thanks to its letterforms’ formal-looking appearance. Elegance flows from their high-contrast structure. But the typeface’s sophistication also has a font-technical explanation: Nusrat is incredibly feature-rich. On its back end, it has more than a dozen OpenType features, which allow it to work with a repertoire of 1,600 glyphs – about four times as many as are common in fonts for the Latin script. Some script fonts are just italics, and their letterforms don’t connect. Nusrat, on the other hand, is a connecting-script typeface. That connectivity is the reason so many glyphs are necessary. They help give Nusrat the impression that its text is hand-written by a skilled calligrapher. Each letter flows naturally into the next, no matter which letter combinations you type. For instance, Nusrat’s OpenType features can automatically substitute a special “initial” letter at the beginning of words that start with lowercase letters, and special “final” lowercase letters at words’ ends. These makes your words look like they were written in a single go. Many of Nusrat’s alternate characters can also be called via the font’s Stylistic Sets. The OpenType feature “Stylistic Set 1” has alternate forms for 25 capital letters, while Stylistic Set 2 has additional alternates for 13 more. Stylistic Set 3 has alternates for 12 capitals. Like the previous Stylistic Set, this one has alternates for all diacritical instances of those letters in the fonts’. Stylistic Sets 4 to 13 are for lowercase letter alternates, with Stylistic Sets 7–9 offering various versions of initial letters and 10–13 featuring alternates for final letters. Stylistic Set 14 includes more exuberant versions of the font’s numerals. Aside from that, you can select oldstyle figures for your text, too. The typeface is named after the famous Pakistani Qawwali singer Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan.
