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.
