about huronia

Huronia is a text face with a distinct flavour, developed originally to serve in the preservation of oral literature in native American languages. It addresses the requirements of extended reading in books and academic texts, and with its chiseled forms, we are sure it would shine in woodcrafting magazines too! Besides being a fully-equipped Latin font with expert features, Huronia takes up the challenge to support all the indigenous languages of the Americas.

Alongside Latin-based orthographies, it provides, for the first time, a level of typographic sophistication that gives Canadian syllabics an equal footing with the Latin, with full attention to harmonising the bold and italic styles between scripts. Currently, the Latin Pro and Inuktitut versions are available, and we will be releasing the polytonic Greek, extended Latin, Cherokee, and more in due course.
