auncial-new – Artificial Uncial font and support macros

The aun­cial-new bun­dle pro­vides pack­ages and fonts for a script based on the Ar­ti­fi­cial Un­cial manuscript book-hand used be­tween the 6th & 10th cen­tury AD. The script con­sists of mi­nus­cules and dig­its, with some ap­pro­pri­ate pe­riod punc­tu­a­tion marks. Both nor­mal and bold ver­sions are pro­vided, and the font is dis­tributed in Adobe Type 1 for­mat. This is an ex­per­i­men­tal new ver­sion of the aun­cial bun­dle, which is one of a se­ries of book­hand fonts.

The font fol­lows the B1 en­cod­ing de­vel­oped for bookhands. Ac­cess to the en­cod­ing is es­sen­tial. The en­cod­ing mainly fol­lows the stan­dard T1 en­cod­ing.
