Schijn encompasses the entire process of a faceted gemstone, from being mined to being cut and finally sold to a buyer. The letterforms and dingbats reveal the chasm between exertion and extravagance, creating a layer of storytelling that makes Schijn more than just a shiny bauble. Alternate characters, small capitals, old-style numerals, and wide language support push Schijn beyond being just a display typeface, while the variable and color-font versions make use of all the possibilities that modern font technology has to offer.
