Iwona is a two-element sans-serif typeface. It was created as an alternative
version of the Kurier typeface, which was designed in 1975 for a diploma
in typeface design at the Warsaw Academy of Fine Arts under the supervision
of Roman Tomaszewski.

Kurier was designed for linotype typesetting of newspapers and similar
periodicals. The Iwona fonts are an alternative version of the Kurier fonts.
The difference lies in the absence of ink traps which typify the Kurier font.

This distribution contains a significantly extended set of characters covering
the following modern alphabets: latin (including Vietnamese), cyrillic and
greek as well as a number of additional symbols (including mathematical
symbols). The fonts are prepared in Type 1 and OpenType formats. For use
with TeX the following encoding files have been prepared: T1 (ec), T2 (abc),
and OT2 -- cirilic, T5 (Vietnamese), OT4, QX, texansi and nonstandard (IL2
for the Czech fonts), as well as supporting macros and files defining fonts
for LaTeX. The doc/fonts/iwona folder contains examples for plain TeX as well
as for LaTeX and an example of typesetting mathematics.
