An eclectic cuneiform font created for the Unicode standard


Contents

[edit] Description

Cuneiform Composite was created and is maintained by Steve Tinney. Alphabetician and font designer Michael Everson of Evertype corrected many glyph problems. It is a composite font which is based on Ur III forms but which ranges from Fara to Neo-Assyrian in its outliers. The reason for this is that it was designed to cover all of the cuneiform defined in Unicode version 5.0.
