I am a HUGE fan of Bernard Cornwell's 'The Saxon Stories'. Ever since a television series has been made, the series of books is also know as 'The Last Kingdom'. I have read them all, at break-neck speed and I can't wait for the next book!! Wintanceastre (Winchester) is based on a 10th century Latin manuscript. I have tried to stay close to the original letters, but since Latin does not have all modern glyphs, I found myself designing the missing ones. So, before you scold me for having made a font that is historically inaccurate: it was never meant to be an exact replica, nor would anyone want an exact replica, as it would be useless for modern texts and designs.

Wintanceastre comes with a whole bunch of ligatures and alternate glyphs. Use it for any design that needs a little 'Dark Ages' look!
