About Duibhlinn Font Family

Duibhlinn is based on the classic standard Gaelic typeface of the 1930s. One version of this was the Monotype Series 24 A font, ca. 1906-1922; this was recast by Michael O'Rahilly in 1913. Duibhlinn was first digitized in 1993 by Michael Everson and originally used the MacGaelic character set on the Macintosh platform, and ISO/IEC 8859-14 on the PC. In 2008 Duibhlinn version 3 was released in OpenType format, completely compliant with Unicode encoding and with an extended character set. Duibhlinn has been used by the Irish Department of the Taoiseach to typeset the “Enrolled” version of the Irish Constitution, which presents the text as it was voted on, with the older sections in the Gaelic script.

About Evertype

Evertype is a font foundry, typesetting, software, and publishing company based in Westport, Co. Mayo, Ireland. Founded by Michael Everson, Evertype supports minority-language communities, especially in the fields of character standardization and internationalization. Michael is is one of the co-authors of the Unicode Standard, and is a Contributing Editor and Irish National Representative to ISO/IEC JTC1/SC2/WG2, the committee responsible for the development and maintenance of the Universal Character Set. CeltScript is Michael's ongoing effort to provide high-quality reproductions of the Gaelic fonts historically used to print the Irish language since the first book was printed in 1571. In addition, he continues to design some "new" Gaelic fonts which are, he believes, authentic to the Celtic tradition. He has also made available the typefaces employed on the Irish typewriters which were in use earlier this century.
