Strange News

a typeface by Feòrag NicBhrìde

Strange Newes is a development of my Chapbook type, based on 17th century typography. The characters have been made much smoother and more regular. The font takes advantage of Unicode and includes a large number of glyphs, including accented characters for eastern European languages, Irish and Welsh, plus Cyrillic and Greek letters. The font also includes a long-s, and a selection of period ligatures. Italics and further weights are planned.
