Inspired by the old Stephenson Blake Caps only font Algerian from 1908, this version, named Algerian Mesa, has been freshened up with a new matching lowercase.

The original Algerian, on page 142 of the 1908 Stephenson Blake specimen book, was a small caps to a more decorative lining caps and the plain black version, without the shadow line, was named Gloria.

Also on page 142 of the 1908 Stephenson Blake specimen book is a shaded Latin font that gave me the idea for the Alt version of Algerian Mesa.

The Alt version works well at smaller point sizes combined with the regular Algerian Mesa font on the same page.

New for 2016 were Opentype features including original alternates, oldstyle numerals and case sensitive forms, also new is a fully usable Alt version.

In this new 2022 version of Algerian Mesa we've expanded the family to include two sets of small caps, the S version is at 90% and the SC version is at 80% the height of the uppercase.

We've also added a larger x-height version.

We've also changed the accent marks acute, grave, circumflex and caron, we've straightened the sides removing the curved flair design in favor of a more traditional look.

And last we've added new italics to Algerian Mesa.
