Pure Soane Sans forms part of a reappraisal of the Regency Architects intensions for Inscriptional Letterforms following a recent discovery of an overlooked early Sans Letter on a pair of Gate Houses in Norfolk. These buildings were recorded as erected between 1790-92 with two Greyhound Statues including inscriptional motos on stone plynths contemporary to the building. The letters have distinctive widths and features, particularly the 'J' which shares an idiosyncratic partial serif that is also seen on Soane's titling on the better known drawings for his proposed Norwich (Castle) Gaol.

These features have provided the clues to a new Sans Serif Typeface firmly based upon the origin of the serefless letter.
