|KPS-Fonts - Klaus-Peter Schäffel's Computer Fonts|
|The KPS Fonts are a series of 70 OpenType computer fonts with PostScript outlines for PC and Mac.|
The KPS Fonts come in four groups: palaeographic, typographic, own interpretations, own inventions.
The KPS Fonts can be easily distinguished by the fact that their names start with a year.
So the whole set is listed at the very beginning of your computer's font list.
The KPS Fonts contain a huge number of historic glyphs like long s and its ligatures.
The KPS Fonts are featured with automatic ligatures and other special functions.
These can be used in all programs supporting OpenType Features.
The KPS Fonts are free.
|Examples for the available KPS Fonts:|
