  • Alphabetum is a large, multilingual font (over 5,780 characters in version 9.90) designed for typing ancient languages. A free demo of the font is available to download, containing around 500 fewer characters than the full version. The full version is available to purchase for EUR 15 - 60, depending on the status and purposes of the customer.


    From the download site: Only a Windows version of Alphabetum is currently available, however this font should be usable on Macintosh running OSX. For Unix/Linux systems, there have been reports of people using Alphabetum successfully under these systems, however the font designer has only tested it under Debian. In any case, you need to configure your Xfree server to recognize and to use TrueType fonts in Unix/Linux.

  • Google has been developing a font family called Noto, which aims to support all languages with a harmonious look and feel. Noto is Google’s answer to tofu. The name Noto is to convey the idea that Google’s goal is to see “no more tofu” (tofu being the nickname for the small square boxes displayed when characters are missing from a font). Noto has multiple styles and weights, and is freely available to all.
