Directory fonts/erewhon

This package provides LaTeX support files for the Erewhon fonts, made up of fonts files and LaTeX support files for a family based on Andrey V. Panov's Heuristica fonts, version 1.0.1, which were in turn a substantial extension of the free Utopia font family making available Cyrillic glyphs, Small Caps in regular weight, upright shape, and oldstyle fixed-width figures in all styles. Erewhon adds small caps in all styles, slanted shapes distinct from italic, superior letter and figures in all styles, as well as inferior, numerator and denominator figures in all styles. The six font files in this package are in otf and pfb format, licensed under the SIL OFL. All other support files are subject to the LaTeX Project Public License. See 
for the details of that license. 

Current version: 1.093, 2019-06-10

Changes in version 1.093
Corrected an error in the last correction to the fd file. (Thanks, Frank Mittelbach.)

Changes in version 1.092
Corrected an error in the fd files. The use of \providecommand in the fd could cause problems for users who did not load erewhon.sty.

Changes in version 1.091
Added the file erewhon.fontspec, which was inadvertently omitted from version 1.09.

Changes in version 1.09
Corrected some missing or malformed small cap accented glyphs. (Thanks, Sebastian Wasiuta.)

Changes in version 1.08
Added options to give the user complete control of all word-spacing parameters.

Changes in version 1.075
Modified the sty file so that Erewhon text figure styles are selected always in the \AtEndPreamble hook. (Formerly, using babel would prevent this.)

Changes in version 1.074
Modified some metadata in the otf files, correcting some misbehaviors in some programs and platforms.

Changes in version 1.073
Corrected the problem of some currency glyphs inappropriately rendering at small cap sizes. (Thanks Ricard Torres.)

Changes in version 1.072
Modified erewhon.sty to not require any T2 encodings. Cyrillic users will have to load the appropriate encoding themselves.

Changes in version 1.071
Added two entries to smcp table so that dotlessi and dotlessj map to correct small cap glyph.

Changes in version 1.07
Recreated the package to add some tfm files in T2A, T2B, T2C that were missing in v.1.06. 

Changes in version 1.06
1. Small changes to spacing and kerning tables.
2. Added uni2016 glyph.----required by some footnote macros.

Changes in version 1.05
1. Changed the subfamily names in RegularSlanted and BoldSlanted to Oblique and BoldOblique. The otfs now cooperate much better with fontspec, and show up properly in Windows and Linux font menus.
2. Added small caps to Italic and BoldItalic, copying the Oblique versions. These are not yet well kerned.
3. Added a number of small caps glyphs so that all small caps in T1 encoding are really small caps.
4. Added an OT2 encoded version with TLF figures only.
5. The T2A, T2B and T2C encodings are much improved---otftotfm seems to require a lot of help to get good encoding files.

Changes in version 1.04
1. Changed \Erewhon@scale in erewhon.sty to \erewhon@scale, in accordance with .fd files. (Thanks Marco Zunino.)
2. Added a new macro, \useproportional, to erewhon.sty. It works analogously to \useosf, and may be useful if working with babel, where the option proportional to newtxtext should not be used if loading a math font.

Changes in version 1.03
Brought erewhon.sty more into conformance with newtxtext.sty with respect to handling babel, osf and figure commands like \osfstyle.

Changes in version 1.02
1. Added a visiblespace (uni2423) glyph to all fonts.
2. Changed erewhon.fontspec so it provides by default correct upright shapes for {upright, sc} when using fontspec. (I am not able to make this work with {bold,sc}. You can make it work with {italic,sc} and {bolditalic,sc} using, e.g.,
ItalicFeatures={SmallCapsFont={Erewhon-RegularSlanted},  SmallCapsFeatures={Letters=SmallCaps}},
BoldItalicFeatures={ SmallCapsFont={Erewhon-BoldSlanted},SmallCapsFeatures={Letters=SmallCaps}}
If you use any similar settings for SlantedFeatures, you will not get upright small caps in upright mode. I believe this is most likely a fontspec bug.

Changes in version 1.01a
Corrected folder hierarchy names for afm files in tds.

Changes in version 1.01
1. Corrected spacing errors in italic and bold italic fonts.
2. Minor corrections to some italic and bold italic superior letters.

Changes in version 1.001
1. Modified BlueValues of fonts to correct problems with t1lint, though t1lint still provokes warnings.
2. Added afm files to distribution.

The otf fonts contain all the kerning and other tables. Should you wish to modify these yourself, the LaTeX support files may be re-created using the command

/usr/texbin/autoinst  --inferiors --fractions --verbose --noupdmap  --noswash --notitling --noornaments --target=./texmf --encoding=TS1,LY1,T2A,T2B,T2C,T1 --vendor=public --typeface=erewhon *.otf

after cding to the folder containing just the modified otf fonts and a subfolder named texmf. You should replace the newly generated erewhon.sty with the one from the distribution in order to preserve its functionality. The names of the encoding files should also be modified appropriately from those assigned by autoinst. I used the following bash shell script, which assumed you are in the directory holding the otf files and a texmf subfolder:

pushd texmf/fonts/map/dvips/erewhon
sed -i '' 's/<\[a_/<\[zut1_/g' erewhon.map
pushd texmf/fonts/enc/dvips/erewhon
for f in *.enc; do mv ${f} zut1${f:1}; done


Mac OS X: To install, open a Terminal window and cd to inside the downloaded TDS folder.

Method A (recommended): type

sudo /bin/cp -Rfp * /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local


sudo mktexlsr


sudo -H updmap-sys --enable Map=erewhon.map

Method B: If you insist on making your font installations in your home folder, potentially making your personal installation become out of sync with updates to TeXLive, use instead

(i) if you checked Update for All Users in TeXLive utility

/bin/cp -Rfp * ~/Library/texmf


updmap --enable Map=erewhon.map

(ii) otherwise

/bin/cp -Rfp * ~/Library/texmf


sudo updmap-sys --enable Map=erewhon.map

Linux: Very similar to Mac OS X.

MikTeX: Copy erewhon.tds.zip to the root of the folder you use for personal additions to the TeX trees, open a command window, chdir to that folder, and type

unzip erewhon.tds.zip
initexmf --update-fndb
initexmf --edit-config-file updmap

The latter command should open updmap.cfg in your default editor, commonly Notepad. Add the line 

Map erewhon.map 

to updmap.cfg, save and close. Then, in the command window, type

initexmf --mkmaps

You can ignore error messages that may occur here. This should result in a properly enabled erewhon.

erewhon – Font package derived from Heuristica and Utopia

Erewhon is based on the Heuristica package, which is based in turn on Utopia. Erewhon adds a number of new features — small caps in all styles rather than just regular, added figure styles (proportional, inferior, numerator, denominator) and superior letters. The size is 6% smaller than Heuristica, matching that of UtopiaStd.
