Walleye

Walleye is an original serif font suitable for setting longer texts. Its long, banner-shaped finials and its airy letterforms give it character and an open texture on the page. Walleye has four styles: regular, italic, bold, and bold italic.

Walleye is a multilingual font. It includes the Latin, (Polytonic) Greek, and Cyrillic alphabets, and has meticulous coverage of the character sets of a broad variety of languages, including almost all spoken in Europe. It also has many OpenType features, including small caps for all supported languages, old-style figures, and highly developed typesetting options for Ancient Greek.

For more information, see the font's page at the Looseleaf Fonts site.

Installing

Download the ZIP of all the files:

WalleyeComplete.zip

Extract it, and you've got .otf files, which your computer should be able to make sense of. Install it in whatever way you normally install fonts.

Developing

You can choose from .ufo files or .otf files; they're both here. Be aware that I haven't done any work on this font in many years, and the .ufo files were automatically generated by FontForge.

Don't let the scent of abandonware scare you off, though; I'm proud of this font and it hasn't decayed since I finished it. There are no pictures as of yet, but I expect to have a chance to put some up soon.
