poltawski – Antykwa Półtawskiego Family of Fonts

The package contains the Antykwa Półtawskiego family of fonts in the PostScript Type 1 and OpenType formats. The original font was designed in the twenties of the XX century by the Polish typographer Adam Półtawski(1881-1952).

Following the route set out by the Latin Modern and Gyre projects (http://www.gust.org.pl/projects/e-foundry), the Antykwa Półtawskiego digitisation project aims at providing a rich collection of diacritical characters in the attempt to cover as many Latin-based scripts as possible. To our knowledge, the repertoire of characters covers all European languages as well as some other Latin-based alphabets such as Vietnamese and Navajo; at the request of users, recent extensions (following the enhancement of the Latin Modern collection) provide glyphs sufficient for typesetting of romanized transliterations of Arabic and Sanskrit scripts.

The Antykwa Półtawskiego family consists of 4 weights (light, normal, medium, bold), each having upright and italic forms and one of 5 design sizes: 6, 8, 10, 12 and 17pt. Altogether, the collection comprises 40 font files, containing the same repertoire of 1126 characters.

The preliminary version of Antykwa Półtawskiego (antp package) released in 2000 is rendered obsolete by this package.
