Tituli Anatolian

Tituli Anatolian is both the name of Esintype’s research project on the ancient scripts of Anatolia and the collective name of the font families series produced as a result of that study.

Selected seven typeface projects were included in the study. It is aimed that each of them reflect a period and style of Anatolian inscriptions. One of the typeface families will have a comprehensive multiscript feature suitable for use in epigraphic publications. These fonts will have extensive language support covering Latin scripts including European languages, Greek alphabets including some Anatolian dialects, four ancient Anatolian scripts including Phrygian, for which the Unicode regulation has not yet been published, and five other antique alphabets with no linguistic affinity.

Below is a list of fonts produced and released or to be released within the scope of the project. Just below that, there is a link to a blog post that talks about the historical background.

This page will be updated with any progress.
