I received this announcement today.
After careful consideration, Brill has taken the initiative of designing a typeface. Named “the Brill”, the new typeface presents complete coverage of the Latin script with the full range of diacritics and linguistics (IPA) characters used to display any language from any period correctly, and Greek and Cyrillic are also covered. There are over 5,100 characters in total, some of which are combining characters, and by using these, myriads of other characters with diacritics can be generated. This indispensable tool for scholars is now freely available for non-commercial use. You can download the font package on brill.nl/brill-typeface after agreeing to the EndUser License Agreement. “The Brill” is available now in roman and italic styles, and bold and bold italic will be released at a later stage. The typeface contains all necessary punctuation marks and a wide assortment of symbols. It will be especially welcomed by humanities scholars quoting from texts in any language, ancient or modern.
“”The Brill” complies with all international and web standards, the most important of which is the Unicode Standard.”
John Hudson of Tiro Typeworks, well-known for his multilingual fonts, is “the Brill”‘s designer.
