PREAMBLE
The goals of the Open Font License (OFL) are to stimulate worldwide development of collaborative font projects, to support the font creation efforts of academic and linguistic communities, and to provide a free and open framework in which fonts may be shared and improved in partnership with others.

The OFL allows the licensed fonts to be used, studied, modified and redistributed freely as long as they are not sold by themselves. The fonts, including any derivative works, can be bundled, embedded, redistributed and/or sold with any software provided that any reserved names are not used by derivative works. The fonts and derivatives, however, cannot be released under any other type of license. The requirement for fonts to remain under this license does not apply to any document created using the fonts or their derivatives.

DEFINITIONS
“Font Software” refers to the set of files released by the Copyright Holder(s) under this license and clearly marked as such. This may include source files, build scripts and documentation.

“Reserved Font Name” refers to any names specified as such after the copyright statement(s).

“Original Version” refers to the collection of Font Software components as distributed by the Copyright Holder(s).

Webfont Kit

The license for this font is the SIL OFL license. This license does not allow us to redistribute derivative versions of the font without wholesale name changes inside and out of the font. Until we figure out a reasonable method of delivering these to you and complying with the license, you will have to use the Webfont Generator yourself on these, renaming the fonts appropriately.

If you are the designer of this font, and this was an unintended consequence of using the OFL license, contact us and give us permission to allow webfont conversions. Thanks!

Font Information

The Old Standard font family is an attempt to revive a specific type of Modern (classicist) style of serif typefaces, very commonly used in various editions printed in the late 19th and early 20th century, but almost completely abandoned later. Although contemporary typographers often consider this lettertype obsolete and out-of-fashion, it still has at least two advantages:

—The classicist style still can be considered a good choice for typesetting scientific papers, especially on social and humanitarian sciences, as its specific features are closely associated in the people’s eyes with old books they learned on;

—the most beautiful examples of Greek and Cyrillic lettertypes were all based on the Modern style, so that for those scripts “Modern” fonts are much more appropriate than any contemporary (e. g. Times-based) designs.

That’s why the Old Standard font family has two main purposes: it is intended to be used as a specialized font for philologists (mainly classicists, germanists and slavists) and also as a general-purpose font for typesetting various editions in languages which use Greek or Cyrillic script. For this reason Old Standard provides glyphs for a wide range of Latin, Greek and Cyrillic characters.

The name “Old Standard” was selected as opposed to the “Obyknovennaya Novaya” (“New Standard”) typeface, widely used in the Soviet typography, which represents another, slightly different type of the same Modern style. The digital version of this font is now available from Paratype (http://www.paratype.ru). Of course this name doesn’t look very original, but it seems to be a good choice for a revival of the most common lettertype of the early 20th century.
