The specimen ‘Kannada Aksharagalu’, which translates to ‘Kannada alphabets’, was printed in the year 1941 by The National Type Foundry, Bangalore. The specimen exhibits the Kannada script of various categories from display to text and proportions from standard to wide. The characters indicate a particular style, which can be categorised into a variant called the ‘Old Style Kannada’. Unlike the text variants, the display variants stand out with exaggerated flourishes within letterforms. This showcase points to evidence of modifications and readjustments of the Kannada script within the past century.
