Their books, Cuadernos Santillana, use the hybrid cursive approach that mixes print uppercase and continuous cursive lowercase. The books use a unique typeface that bears the publisher’s own name. Based on the limited information available, it has been customised exclusively for the Grupo Santillana’s educational textbooks. In this design, lowercase letters are built using round shapes, and feature medium-length extensions. Some distinctive features include the print style “k”, italic “z” and the “w” with two knots. The uppercase letters are slightly narrower when compared to the proportions of typefaces such as Escolar and MeMimas, which are used by other popular handwriting textbooks*.* The typeface also offers a second style that has a set of ornate, cursive uppercase letters.
