KPS-Fonts - Klaus-Peter Schäffel's Computer Fonts

The KPS Fonts are a series of 70 OpenType computer fonts with PostScript outlines for PC and Mac.
The KPS Fonts
come in four groups: palaeographic, typographic, own interpretations, own inventions.
The KPS Fonts
can be easily distinguished by the fact that their names start with a year.
    So the whole set is listed at the very beginning of your computer's font list.  
The KPS Fonts
contain a huge number of historic glyphs like long s and its ligatures.
The KPS Fonts
are featured with automatic ligatures and other special functions.
    These can be used in all programs supporting OpenType Features.   
The KPS Fonts are free.

Examples for the available KPS Fonts:
One sample for each one of the four groups. At the left side you find the links to more fonts, downloads and instructions.
The samples have been composed with the actual KPS fonts.
