Kurier is a two-element sans-serif typeface. It was designed for a diploma
in typeface design at the Warsaw Academy of Fine Arts under the supervision
of Roman Tomaszewski. The result was presented with other Polish typefaces
at the ATypI conference in Warsaw in 1975.

Kurier was intended for linotype typesetting of newspapers and similar
periodicals. The design goals included resistance to technological processes
destructive to the letter shapes. As a result, amongst others, the typeface
distinguishes itself through intra- and extra-letter white spaces as well
as ink traps at cross-sections of some elements constituting the characters.

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/kurier folder contains examples for plain TeX as well
as for LaTeX and an example of typesetting mathematics.
