Very many thanks for the idea
Following the route set out by the Latin Modern and TeX
Gyre projects, the
Antykwa Poltawskiego digitisation project aims at providing a
rich collection of diacritical characters in the attempt to cover as
many Latin-based scripts as possible. To our best knowledge, the
repertoire of characters covers all European languages as well as
some other Latin-based alphabets such as Vietnamese and Navajo; at
the request of users, recent extensions (following the enhancement of
the Latin Modern collection) provide glyphs sufficient for
typesetting of romanized transliterations of Arabic and Sanskrit
scripts. We have frequently used the information presented by Michael
Everson at the The Alphabets of Europe web site. If you know about
European languages that are not covered completely or if some glyphs
have apparently wrong shapes—please let us know.
The Antykwa Poltawskiego project was launched by the Polish TeX Users GUST and is supported by TeX users groups. Hearty thanks to the representatives of these groups, especially to Mojca Miklavec, and also to all people who helped with comments, ideas, remarks, bug reports, objections, hints, consolations, etc.
The Antykwa Poltawskiego family consists of 4 weights (light, normal, medium, bold), each having upright and italic forms and one of 5 design sizes: 6, 8, 10, 12 and 17pt (in the OTF lingo: extended, semiextended, normal, semicondensed, and condensed, respectively). Altogether, the collection comprises of 40 font files.
The collection may be freely used and distributed under GFL, the GUST Font License, which is actually an instance of LPPL, the LaTeX Project Public License.
The fonts may be downloaded from our download page.
