Not sure if you mean the way the fonts are built or the appearance - I suspect you're referring to how they're built, but I think the appearance is a bit crude on purpose. For period books I don't have a problem with the appearance.

The ttf download did have dedicated smallcaps options accessible from a keyboard, so I suppose it would be straightforward to convert those to otf if that was preferred.
