Licensing Options

You can use this font in any of the following places. Read the full EULA text for details about each license. If you have a usage in mind that's not covered by these licenses, contact us and we'll see what we can do.

Desktop: for use on a desktop workstation

For the most common uses, both personal and professional, for use in desktop applications with a font menu.

For example:

  • Install the font on your Mac OS X or Windows system
  • Use the font within desktop applications such as Microsoft Word, Mac Pages, Adobe InDesign, Adobe Photoshop, etc.
  • Create and print documents, as well as static images (.jpeg, .tiff, .png)

Desktop licenses are based on the number of users of the fonts. You can change the number of users by clicking the quantity dropdown option on Buying Choices or Cart pages.

Edward's Uncial 1904 Desktop EULA

Webfont: for your website

Webfonts can be used on a single domain. Agencies responsible for multiple websites, for example web design agencies or hosting providers, may not share a single webfont license across multiple websites.

Every time the webpage using the webfont kit is loaded (i.e, the webfont kit CSS which holds the @font-face rule is called) the counting system counts a single pageview for each webfont within the webfont kit.

For usage in graphic images shown on the website, consider a Desktop license instead as most allow for it.

This font's webfont license is:

Annual

You get a total number of prepaid pageviews that can be used over time. This means that you will pre-pay for a number of pageviews, then you'll have to come back to order more after your site has been viewed that number of times.

For example, if you order 250,000 page views, when your webpages using the webfonts have been viewed 250,000 times, you will need to buy the webfont package again for an additional number of prepaid pageviews.

About Edward's Uncial 1904 Font Family


It's 100 years since Edward Johnston proposed the two mediaeval styles uncial and half-uncial to reintroduce handwriting as an enjoyable experience of beauty - calligraphy. Here his hand-written forms are adapted for print and screen, and extended for other languages; there are swash forms of beginning capitals and final small letters: and ornaments coming in a separate font soon! In the greater world of today, Edward Johnston is perhaps known mostly for his highly effective but perhaps rather unexciting font for the London Underground; but in calligraphic circles he is given the credit for having more-or-less single-handedly started the 20thC movement for Italic hand-writing, with one book, which was first published in 1906, reprinted dozens of times, and indeed is still in print today - Writing and Illuminating, and Lettering. He gives there two alphabets which he proposes should be used together as a model for a basic repertoire - an uncial and half-uncial used together as a modern upper and lower case respectively: of course, it was the renaissance alphabets which later became the basis for 20thC calligraphy, rather than these early mediaeval models, but they introduced the idea of a broad nib generating thick and thin strokes, rather than the point used for copperplate. Edward Johnston drew the proofs of the two script on different plates, and they are printed on different pages in the book, as models for handwriting: they are really too different from one another to use them together as a font just as they are. But with some adjusting, the result is rather delightful alternative to, on the one hand, historically-authentic uncials, and on the other, the ultra-smooth and regular modern interpretations which most fonts today offer. Alongside the regular font, there is a version with swash capitals to start words off with, and swash lower-cases, mostly to end short lines with, though b f k p q can work with letters after them too: to appear under Windows as a single family, this is called 'Italic' in the font menu. One interesting detail concerns the numbers, for which Edward Johnston suggests that - after a 0 and a 1 which are as high and low as an 'x', neither ascending nor descending - the even numbers might ascend while the odd numbers descend. This makes for a refreshing contrast with today's implementation of these 'old-style numbers', where 2 is 'x'-height like 0 and 1, and 4 descends with its neighbours 3 and 5, rather than ascends like the other even numbers 6 and 8. Edward Johnston gave a model of a decorated capital O with a patterned background: here the two elements are separated, so you can use the background with various colours and with any of the capitals. Or indeed capitals from other fonts.
