Junicode (short for Junius-Unicode) is a Unicode font for medievalists. The current version is a beta; the selection of characters and the arrangement of the Private Use Area are subject to change. Your comments, suggestions and bug reports will be a great help to me as I complete the project.

Junicode is and always will be free (available under the Open Font License). This means that you can use it without charge in any publication, print or electronic, and you may adapt the font for your own use and even distribute your adaptation, as long as you obey the terms of the license.

Junicode currently (as of version 0.7.2) contains 3310 characters in the regular style (the italic, bold and bold italic styles are less complete).

    This is a stunning font. It looks like the legibility will be great. Its very comfortable on the eye. I'm a dedicated medievalist. I am however going to cheat a bit and use this on my husband's website. The oldest music he plays is from the Renaissance. Thank you so much for the beautiful font. I will send you a link when the site is finished.
    Sincerely,
    Schatzie Gibbons

    @schatzie Thank you for the comments. The author, Peter S. Baker, is a well-known Old English scholar at the University of Virginia. As a medievalist, you should also check out his Old English font pack here. I particularly love the Beowulf font.
