DOWNLOAD NEWTON SANS FONT (v 11.2015).
The Chymistry of Isaac Newton Project collaborated with the Unicode Consortium's Technical Committee to introduce a large number of common sixteenth and seventeenth-century alchemical symbols into the Unicode Standard. Our Alchemy Unicode Proposal was officially adopted in 2009-10 and incorporated in Unicode 6.0 and later. The Newton Sans font supports all of the symbols in the Unicode Alchemy plane, which includes symbols that were in regular use in printed publications in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries.
Newton, however, used many alchemical symbols that were not commonly used in the alchemical literature in the seventeenth century. He also used another large set of typographical and editorial marks, including conventional symbols of Latin and English abbreviature. The Newton Sans font also includes these symbols, all of which are documented on our Symbols page. They reside in the private use area, E000-EFFF, with some symbols residing in the Miscellaneous Symbols area, 2600-26FF.
