WenXi Font is a type of elegant and smooth Chinese typeface. This type of typeface was evolved from “HanShuPingLin”, which is a carving copy from Ming Dynasty, ancient China. Its structure and strokes have been standardized and optimized to fit digital pixel and modern printing.
The unique part of this typeface is its strokes. The thickness ratio and horizon/up-right ratio of the strokes have been designed bases on small font size, this is because small font size performs better in gray level and readability. Also, thanks to those obvious “joints” among turning points, the strokes are dynamic when the font size is bigger.
