Peter Baker's old English page at the University of Virginia [Peter S. Baker]

Peter Baker, an English professor at the University of Virginia, offers free TrueType and PostScript fonts such as the nice Junius family (1996, modern hybrid Gaelic), Beowulf-1 (1995, a pseudo-Gaelic face) and Anglo-Saxon Caps as well as tens of links related to old English. He also developed Junicode, "the working name of a Unicode font for medievalists." The fonts in the latter project are Junicode-Bold, JunicodeItalic, Junicode (2002), and are by Peter S. Baker and Briery Creek Software.

In 2010, he published the elegant Carolingian typeface Eadui: Reproduction of English Caroline Minuscule as written by Eadui Basan, a scribe at eleventh-century Christ Church, Canterbury.

In 2014, he published Bury Caps (OFL). This decorative typeface was inspired by the display capitals in the 12th-century Bury Bible.

Interlace Set (2015) is a dingbat font for making Hiberno-Saxon interlace patterns.
