Old Standard: A Unicode Font for Classical and Medieval Studies

Old Standard is designed to reproduce the actual printing style of the early 20th century, reviving a specific type of Modern (classicist) style of serif typefaces, very commonly used in various editions of the late 19th and early 20th century, but almost completely abandoned later.

The font supports typesetting of Old and Middle English, Old Icelandic, Cyrillic (with historical characters, extensions for Old Slavonic and localised forms), Gothic transliterations, critical editions of Classical Greek and Latin, and many more.

Old Standard works with TeX engines that directly support OpenType features, such as XeTeX and LuaTeX.

The authors are Alexej Kryukov and Nikola Lečić. The package is Copyright © 2006-2008 Alexey Kryukov.
