Javenese typefaces: history
Jo de Baerdemaker's talk at ATypI 2010 in Dublin had this summary: Jo De Baerdemaeker discusses how the Javanese writing system, the indigenous script of pre-colonial Indonesia, was adapted to print. He focuses on the Javanese typefaces that were manufactured in The Netherlands in the nineteenth and twentieth century. The cutting of the first Javanese fount, which was undertaken at Joh. Enschedé en Zonen in Haarlem, coincided with the founding of the first printing house in Jakarta (then known as Batavia, capital of Dutch India). Less than a century later, Lettergieterij Amsterdam developed a new, simplified, Javanese fount, amongst other styles and weights. The Javanese founts of both the Dutch typefoundries were internationally well received and were distributed to polyglot printing houses throughout Europe. [Google] [More] ⦿

Palakkad, Kerala-based computer scientist. He is responsible for Autonym Font (2013). He explains: A font that can render all language autonyms. If we want to show a large number of languages written in their own scripts (autonyms), we cannot apply the usual webfonts to it. This is because when each script requires a webfont, we will end up using a large number of webfonts. This can cause large bandwidth usage. An example of this use case is a language selector on a website. Autonym font tries to solve this. The font contains glyphs and opentype rules for rendering the language autonyms. And it contains only those glyphs for a language. The glyphs for the font are taken from a large number of free licensed fonts.
The sources for the glyphs, by language, are:

Troy Leinster is a graphic designer from Brisbane, Australia, who is based in Amsterdam. Before studying TypeMedia at KABK (class of 2013), Troy attended the type design unit at Monash University in Melbourne, and is a graduate of Type@Cooper at The Cooper Union in New York City.
His graduation typeface at KABK was Brisbane (2013): Brisbane is a relaxed, self-assured sans serif designed specifically for pedestrian wayfinding in the city of Brisbane, Australia. The family has a range of three weights in five styles plus accompanying optical grades for inverted use. This makes Brisbane a solid candidate for orientation systems in the city or suburb.. This typeface has oomph and character, and should prove a sturdy and fun typeface for any city that uses it.
For his revival project at KABK, he chose Nieuw Javaansch No.1 (2012). Nieuw Javaansch No.1 was the first text typeface designed by S.H. de Roos in 1909 while working at Lettergieterij Amsterdam (formerly known as N. Tetterode). It is a Javanese script.
