799 Insular is a historical font family. This typeface has two styles and was published by GLC Foundry.

This font was inspired from the so called “Insular Style” Latin script used in Celtic monasteries (Ireland, Scotland -with the well known “Book of Kells”- and England) from the late 6th to 9th, before the Carolingian “Caroline” (look at our “825 Karolus”). It was a regular script, rounded, written slowly, used mainly for specialy meticulous books, with a very little few of ligatures. The rarely used capitals was consisting in enlarged lowercases, but, on the other hand, there was numerous historiated initials.
The Titling file proposed allow to create two colours decorated letters, using OTF Titling feature or copy and paste technic.
We have created the font as to be adapted for contemporary users,  making difference between U and V, I and J, which has not any relevance for ancient Latin scribes, and naturally with Thorn, Oslash, Lslash, K,W… The specific Celtic “y” is added as an historical alternate.
