SIL OPEN FONT LICENSE Version 1.1 - 26 February 2007
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.
“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).
“Modified Version” refers to any derivative made by adding to, deleting, or substituting—in part or in whole—any of the components of the Original Version, by changing formats or by porting the Font Software to a new environment.
“Author” refers to any designer, engineer, programmer, technical writer or other person who contributed to the Font Software.

Kelvinch Regular | 3547 Glyphs
Kelvinch Italic | 3550 Glyphs
Kelvinch Bold | 3547 Glyphs
Kelvinch Bold Italic | 3550 Glyphs
Although Kelvinch is meant for body text I have endeavoured to make the characters as aesthetically pleasing as possible without compromising its objective to be comfortable to read in long texts.
It comes in Regular, Italic, Bold and Bold Italic faces.
Kelvinch is a free font, free in the sense of free of restrictions and DRM but also free in the sense of cost.
Under the terms of the license you may use Kelvinch in any kind of publication, print or electronic, without fees or restrictions. You may modify the font for your own use. You may distribute your modified version in accordance with the terms of the SIL license.
You may use Kelvinch for any purpose including commercial usage. The only thing you may NOT do is sell the font on its own as a stand alone font.

It started out as my own personal font but somewhere along the way that changed and other people became interested in it and I took the decision to try to make it good enough that I wouldn’t be embarrassed to know that other people were using it. I never once considered selling it.
It covers many Unicode blocks including Greek & Coptic, Cyrillic, Georgian, Armenian, Mathematical Operators, Miscellaneous Symbols, Dingbats, Runes, Letterlike Symbols, Arrows and a comprehensive coverage of most of the Latin blocks.
It has taken over a year to develop.
Update, 14th April 2016
Updated to version 3.1 - There was a fault in the kern tables in 3.0, some of the kern pairs for the Roman font didn’t work. Also changed the position of many diacritic marks to improve the overall appearance of the font. Also changed the format of the download file from .7Z to .ZIP , although this is bigger it is also more compatible with computers which do not have 7zip installed.
Everything else is the same!
Update, 8th May 2016
And I thought this was finished, how wrong I was.
Based on the feedback I received I corrected some mistakes and changed a few things including the crossbar on the Upper Case ‘A’ which most people thought was a mistake. It’s a pity, Kelvinch has lost some of it’s character, but then character is not what you want in body text, it can become tiresome very quickly, oh well ...
Added some more Open Type features and re-kerned the whole thing.
Also changed the website address to the address of my blog, the free webhosting I tried wasn’t very good and just seemed like they were trying to force people into getting their paid webhosting by offering very bad service to the free customers and making things very difficult for them. So kelvinch.uk never got up and running, sorry.
Hopefully this WILL be the last version.
