This is the README for the almendra package, version
This package provides LaTeX, pdfLaTeX, XeLaTeX and LuaLaTeX
support for the Almendra family of fonts, designed by
Ana Sanfelippo. Almendra is a typeface design based on
calligraphy. Its style is related to the chancery and gothic
hands. There are regular and bold weights with matching
italics. There is also a regular-weight small-caps.
To install this package on a TDS-compliant
TeX system download the file
"tex-archive"/install/fonts/almendra.tds.zip where the
preferred URL for "tex-archive" is http://mirrors.ctan.org.
Unzip the archive at the root of an appropriate texmf tree,
likely a personal or local tree. If necessary, update the
file-name database (e.g., texhash). Update the font-map
files by enabling the Map file almendra.map.
To use, add
to the preamble of your document. This will activate
Almendra as the main (serifed) text font.
LuaLaTeX and xeLaTeX users who might prefer type1 fonts or
who wish to avoid fontspec may use the type1 option.
Options scaled=<number> or scale=<number> may be used to
scale the fonts.
The only figure style is proportional oldstyle.
Font encodings supported are OT1, T1, LY1, and TS1.
The original Truetype fonts were obtained from
and are licensed under the SIL Open Font License,
version 1.1; the text may be found in the doc directory.
The type1 versions were created using fontforge. The
support files were created using autoinst and otftotfm and
are licensed under the terms of the LaTeX Project Public
License. The maintainer of this package is Bob Tennent (rdt
