Tertius was designed by Anton Scholtz, Merle Scholtz and published by Scholtz Fonts. Tertius contains 4 styles and family package options.  

Tertius, with its high ascenders and clubbed serifs, is a modern interpretation of the classic Carolingian style (7th - 9th centuries AD). There was no capital form in the Carolinian hand and Roman square capitals were originally used with it. The Carolingian hand began, after a while, to develop more cursive tendencies as people looked for a way to speed up the writing process. I have "capitalized" on this trend and have devised an appropriate and dramatic set of flowing capitals for this family.

With its elegant swashes and bold letter shapes, Tertius embodies the romance of medieval life, of knights, castles, and chivalry.

Tertius comes in four styles:-

-- Regular: with elegant, smoothly penned characters;

-- Crenellated: written with a scratchy pen over rough parchment -- many drops of ink and blotches have been left on the parchment ("Crenellated" means battlements -- the rough protrusions on the top of castle walls); and

-- Romantic: the capitals have been loosely overwritten generating a contemporary version of illuminated capitals.

-- Illuminated: richly decorated illuminated capitals for use with Tertius Regular (28 characters)

All fonts have been carefully crafted, letterspaced and kerned and contain full character sets of 237 characters.
