WAZU JAPAN's Gallery of Unicode Fonts

Gallery of Unicode Fonts [ font samples | "all fonts" lists | test pages | what's new? | more resources ]


The Gallery of Unicode Fonts was created by David McCreedy and Mimi Weiss in March, 2004 as part of their Four Essential Travel Phrases website.

In October, 2006 the site was ceded to WAZU JAPAN.

This Gallery displays samples of available Unicode fonts by writing system (roughly equivalent to Unicode ranges).
These are primarily Windows fonts, although some may work on other platforms.

Without doubt Alan Wood's Unicode Resources is the single most useful website on using Unicode and the fonts that support it.

So why create another Unicode font website? So that when you're looking for a Windows Unicode font you can quickly and easily see what the font looks like.


Click on the writing systems below to see samples of most of the freely available Unicode fonts.
Note that this list is categorized by writing system. For example, you'll find both IPA and Vietnamese under "Latin", Klingon under 'fictional', but Japanese of course under 'J', Chinese under 'C' and so on .

The 2nd adds other font information including source and statistics.

Or use one of the RSS feeds to be informed automatically.

The full RSS feed announces all new fonts added to the Gallery of Unicode Fonts.

You can tailor what information you receive by using one or more of the "à la carte" RSS feeds instead of the full feed.
These more specific feeds appear at the bottom of each font sample page.
For example, at the bottom of the Japanese Fonts page there is an RSS button for just Japanese.
