Description

After careful consideration, Brill has taken the initiative of designing a typeface. Named “the Brill”, it 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 each font (there are four in all: roman, italic, bold, and bold italic), with all necessary punctuation marks and a wide assortment of symbols. These fonts will be especially welcomed by humanities scholars quoting from texts in any language, ancient or modern. The “Brill” fonts comply with all international standards, including Unicode. John Hudson of Tiro Typeworks, well-known for his multilingual fonts, is the Brill typeface’s designer. This indispensable tool for scholars is freely available for non-commercial use. It will also serve customers using a variety of Brill online products such as the Encyclopedia of Hebrew Language and Linguistics, the Encyclopedia of Ancient Greek Language and Linguistics, and many more.
