Empty Hindi Lower Case


This configuration matches the Hindi/Marathi Lower Case of The Sind National Type Foundry: Book of Type Faces (c.1999), and is sized 12 x 32 inches. There are 75 boxes, whereas the normal English Lower case has 53, and the U.S. Lower has 54. The three companion Uppers are Nagari. The Gujarati Type Foundry showed a rather similar Lower case, for Nagari and Marathi, but with 99 boxes. Sind also show a larger Lower with 139 boxes, for Devanagari.
