Lucida OpenType fonts

The Lucida font set available in OpenType format from TUG contains OpenType mathematical fonts in regular and bold weights, the roman Lucida Bright (with small caps), Lucida Sans, Lucida Sans Typewriter, blackletter, calligraphic, and handwriting variants, and finally Lucida Grande Mono and Lucida Console in a DK variant unique to TUG. (A somewhat smaller set of Lucida fonts is available in Type 1 format.)

Ordering and availability

To order, please use this online order form for the Lucida fonts, and thanks for supporting TUG.

We'd like to mention: TUG's pricing is less than half the cost for (approximately) comparable font sets from other vendors, and some of TUG's offerings (bold OpenType math, DK variants, and more), are not available anywhere else; generous, exclusive and a bargain! We appreciate any orders and/or help in spreading the word. Thanks.

Documentation and samples

Sample documents using Lucida are available, including a listing of the supported OpenType features and examples of the math fonts. The image below shows a few characters from each font. More information on the DK variant is available.

Our OpenType font installation instructions are online if you don't have our welcome email handy.

A terse description of changes in each of the occasional updates to the fonts is available.

More comprehensively, PDF files showing all the glyphs in the math fonts, arranged by block, are available: Lucida OpenType Math by block and Lucida OpenType Math-Demi by block. The B&H web site also has samples of Lucida math glyphs (not to mention extensive information of all kinds about Lucida).

If you would like to see particular glyphs or scripts or Unicode blocks added in the future, please email us. No promises, but requests do make a difference.
