Free Unicode fonts for medievalists
On this page I will list other Unicode-based fonts that are of special interest to medievalists. I will list only free fonts. Though I don't object to people and companies selling fonts, I do think they may be allowed to fend for themselves in the publicity arena. Please contact me if you know of a good Unicode font that I have missed. Minimum requirements are that it should have the complete Latin-1 character set, all vowels with macrons, c+dot, g+dot, and the Middle English yogh.
- Gentium by Victor Gaultney. Not specifically for medievalists, but it has excellent coverage of Latin-based alphabets, and it is very beautiful.
- Cardo by David Perry. A very attractive font for "classicists, Biblical scholars, medievalists, and linguists." Regular style only, but we have reason to hope for an italic version at some future date.
- Caslon by George Williams. Some of the Old English characters look slightly odd, but the coverage is fabulous: in addition to all the Latin characters you need, it has oghams and runes, Greek and cyrillic. The design is clean and competent, and it's free.
- Titus Cyberbit Font A Times look-alike, free for non-commercial use. It has a large number of characters in the Private Use Area.
