Historical note:

Insular Minuscule (also known as Anglo-Saxon Minuscule) developed in the eighth century as a less ostentatious successor to insular half-uncial. This development was the particular British response to the Carolingian minuscule emerging in continental Europe. The hand was used for vernacular books between the 8th and 11th centuries, also as glossing (notes) on earlier celtic manuscripts. This typeface is a deliberate and well-formed Anglo-Saxon minuscule of a mostly pointed form, which gives a bold colour; it includes the old English characters of thorn, eth, wynne and historical letter forms such as long-s and long-e.
