This category contains typefaces in the humanist sans-serif classification. They first appeared in the early twentieth century. Humanist sans-serif typefaces are characterized by the presence of the hand, an uppercase similar in proportion to the monumental Roman capitals, a lowercase similar in form to the Carolingian script, and an overall more organic structure. Humanist sans-serif typefaces frequently have a true italic rather than a sloped roman. This is most often seen in a single-story lowercase italic a.
