Ponomar Unicode

Ponomar Unicode
Ponomar Unicode (previously Hirmos Ponomar) is a font for typesetting Synodal Church Slavonic (that is, Church Slavonic used in modern liturgical texts of the Russian Orthodox Church). It may also be used to typeset Romanian (Moldovan) Cyrillic, Aleut and Sakha (Yakut). The font is based on Hirmos UCS by Vlad Dorosh and was reencoded to Unicode and modified with permission of the original author.
Design: Vladislav V. Dorosh, Yuri A.W. Shardt, Nikita Simmons, Aleksandr Andreev.
Font license: This font is part of the Ponomar Project and is licensed under the same terms as Ponomar itself or under the terms of the SIL Open Font License, at your choosing.
The current version of Ponomar Unicode is 1.1 (updated August 12, 2015).

Fedorovsk Unicode

Fedorovsk Unicode
Fedorovsk Unicode is designed to mimick the typeface used by Ivan Fedorov, who produced some of the first printed books in Moscow. It is intended primarily for reproducing publications from that era, either in an academic setting, or as modern Old Rite liturgical texts. The original Fedorovsk typeface was designed by Nikita Simmons; the font was then reencoded for Unicode by Aleksandr Andreev.
The current version of Fedorovsk Unicode is Version 3.0 (public release)
Design: Aleksandr Andreev and Nikita Simmons.
Font license: This Font Software is licensed under the SIL Open Font License, Version 1.1.
The current version of Fedorovsk Unicode is 3.0.

Menaion Unicode

Menaion Unicode
Menaion Unicode is intended for representing text from Ustav-era manuscripts (either Cyrillic or Glagolitic), primarily in an academic setting. In addition to Cyrillic and Glagolitic characters, it also contains characters of early Slavic ecphonetic notation. Menaion Unicode is based on the Menaion font designed by Victor A. Baranov at the Manuscript Project and reencoded for Unicode by Aleksandr Andreev.
The current version of Menaion Unicode is 2.0. Note: a bug in some implementations of OpenType rendering prevents the correct positioning of combining letters in Glagolitic. If you need support for combining Glagolitic characters, we suggest using the SIL Graphite version of the font.
Design: Aleksandr Andreev.
Font license: This Font Software is licensed under the SIL Open Font License, Version 1.1.
The current version of Menaion Unicode is 2.0.

It contains only uppercase Cyrillic characters, but of several different styles (see the documentation for more information). Pomorsky Unicode was designed by Nikita Simmons and Aleksandr Andreev.
The current version of Pomorsky Unicode is BETA Version 0.75. Please note: this font is beta-stage software and is intended primarily for software testing purposes.
Design: Aleksandr Andreev and Nikita Simmons.

Bukvica

Bukvica
This font is disigned for the initial letter of a book or a capital (NOT for typing the whole words or sentences). Such font for initial letters was used in the Moscow „Pechatny Dvor“ (Printing Yard) in the 1st half of the 17th century.
Special thanks to Theodosy (Roman Travin) and Vladislav Dorosh.
P.S. For any questions please write to spektorov[at]yandex.ru
Константин Спекторов: „Со шрифтомъ Bukvica UCS меня нѣкоторые упрекали, что буквицы получились слишкомъ ужъ вычурными. Упрекали, въ общемъ-то, справедливо: какъ правило, я бралъ изъ Пролога наиболѣе „пышные“ варiанты буквицъ.
Теперь рѣшилъ немного переработать шрифтъ. Во-первыхъ, выровнялъ всѣ буквы по высотѣ. Ну и кромѣ того, для большинства буквъ сдѣлалъ два варiанта: на заглавной – болѣе пышная, на строчной – болѣе скромная (искалъ наиболѣе простыя очертанiя въ Прологѣ-1643). Совѣтую использовать строчный варiантъ, когда буквица высотою въ 3-4 строки, и заглавный, когда 6 и болѣе.
Для слѣдующихъ буквъ остался только одинъ варiантъ: зѣло, ща – ю, юсъ малый, кси, пси, ижица (большинство изъ нихъ не отрисованы по образцам изъ Пролога-1643, а придуманы мною, порою не очень удачно). Въ шрифтѣ отсутствуютъ буквы еръ, еры, ерь, юсъ большой. Зато (для цѣлей перенабора Пролога) сдѣлалъ 4 варiанта „слова“: кромѣ заглавной и строчной русскихъ „с“ размѣстилъ также на латинскихъ „c“; также 3-ю „веди“ размѣстилъ на „+“
Изъ дiакритики присутствуютъ только оксiя, звательце и исо. Изъ кернинга – сочетанiя гласныхъ съ дiакритикой.
P.S. Настоящимъ я разрѣшаю свободное распространенiе шрифта въ некоммерческихъ цѣляхъл.“

Irmologion

Irmologion
Шрифт сделан на основе гарнитуры из изданий Синодальной типографии начала 20 века. Название взято от книги, из которой она перерисовывалась: „Ирмологий“ издания 1913 года. UCS-шрифт сделан на основе старой, 13-шрифтовой коллекции Irmologion.
Это моя первая шрифтовая работа, непрофессиональная и наивная. Помимо многочисленных технических огрехов, шрифт еще и довольно неточно воспроизводит оригинальную печатную гарнитуру. Во времена создания Irmologion у меня не было ни опыта, ни технических средств, необходимых для качественного воспроизведения дореволюционного шрифта.
К сожалению, эта, довольно неудачная работа успела стать классической и употребляется во многих пользовательских проектах, так что я вынужден оставить Irmologion на сайте. Если у Вас нет необходимости поддерживать совместимость с Irmologion, я рекомендую использовать более удачный аналог синодальной гарнитуры – Hirmos.
Пожалуйста, обратите внимание: для набора текстов этим и всеми другими UCS-шрифтами настоятельно рекомендуется скачать и установить пакет „Ирмологий-4“ из раздела „Программы“. Вводить и редактировать церковно-славянские тексты только при помощи обычной раскладки клавиатуры возможно, но очень непросто. Пакет „Ирмологий-4“ позволит Вам делать это гораздо удобнее и корректнее.
Характеристики шрифтового набора:
Кернинг – Есть
Капитализированный вариант – Есть
Разрядочное начертание – Есть
Вариант с надстрочниками по методу кернинга – Есть
Вариант для использования в IE – Есть
Наличие всех букв и знаков – Есть
