About Loch Garman Font Family

Loch Garman is based on Baoithín, designed by Viktor Hammer and Colm Ó Lochlainn; Baoithín was based on Hammerschrift, which was related to Hammerschrift American Uncial -- though Loch Garman is more authentic Gaelic font than American Uncial. Loch Garman was first digitized in 1999 by Michael Everson and originally used the MacGaelic character set on the Macintosh platform, and ISO/IEC 8859-14 on the PC. In 2010 Loch Garman version 3 was released in OpenType format, completely compliant with Unicode encoding and with an extended character set.

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.
