Skolar Sans Release Reception

On Wednesday, 26 November 2015, at 5:30 pm we will hold a reception at the Department of Typography & Graphic Communication, University of Reading, to introduce our largest project so far – Skolar Sans. It has been in development for a long time (several years in fact), so anyone who would like to help introduce Skolar’s new colleague to the typographic world is very welcome. David Březina will give a short presentation about the process. There will be wine and all attendees will receive a significant discount on the fonts. Please do RSVP via Facebook (the event page), Twitter, or email, we look forward to seeing you there!

Font updates

We have been sending font updates for all our fonts in the past few days in order to provide all licensors with the most recent versions of our fonts. For some the new fonts may include only minor bug fixes, but if you purchased the fonts long time ago, you may see more dramatic changes and reflows (particularly Eskorte Arabic and Latin in version 1.3 which was remastered earlier this year). That is why it is always a good idea to backup the previous versions before updating. All updates are free to existing customers. Furthermore, customers who shopped on our old web will receive Studio licence versions which includes both OTF and TTF fonts.

Skolar PE Lights and version 3.2

Skolar PE has been updated to include Light and Light Italic, thanks to our “permanent intern” Anna Giedryś (so far Cyrillic, Greek, and linguistic extensions were not available in Light styles). Furthermore, in all the Skolar PE styles, we have added a couple of new characters (hwair, wynn, glottal stop, barred-G, K with caron, and candrabindu mark) useful for Gothic, Skolt Sami, and transliterations. In addition, this update includes improved mark placement on Cyrillic vowels.
