Chunk Five font, now with accents

Chunk Five is a great font from The League of Moveable Type. It’s a nice slab serif that works perfectly for headlines. I recently wanted to use it for a project but there was a major deal breaker: the font has no accent and is missing a lot of characters. Very disappointing. But the cool thing, is that this font is open source: not only it can copied or embed as a webfont, but it can also be modified!

Because I love open source and I love this font, I spent the week-end adding the missing glyphs to Chunk. My version of the font has now twice more glyphs than the original (from 85 to 170). However, it’s still missing many glyphs and it might be buggy.

If you want to give it a try, just download Chunk Five with accents.

Super cool en tout cas. Ce sera dispo à partir du site original aussi ?

Petite particularité, je vois que ta version fait 12ko quand l’originale en fait 28. Une astuce ?

Rik: j’ai notifié le site original, mais pas de réponse encore. Sinon, pour la taille, aucune idée de ce qu’il s’est passé. Je me suis contenté d’ouvrir l’OTF, d’éditer et d’exporter en OTF. J’espère ne pas avoir fait sauter des infos utiles.

AAHhhhhhh génial merci à toi!
J’adore cette police et la LOMT!
Des accents pour fêter ça tiens! éèêàùü!

hi!
great stuff! thanks. If you could add the Norwegian characters ø and å too, I would be well happy. (æ was not enough for me 😉

Excuse moi mais peut-on l’utiliser directement sur un site à la place de l’auter chunk ?

This is great, makes the font WAY more useable for the web. Merci from Vancouver!

Hi, Meredith who created this font sent me here and told me that you might have the solution for us? Mike Kus is doing a wonderful job with our Marketing pages and used Chunk Five. We ned the Swedish letter å , ä , ö to be included in Chunk Five to be able to use it on our website. Can you help us? We would be extremely grateful.

Thanks Maurice for your work. I was puzzled by Ditte’s comment because the version of Chunk I downloaded does have å , ä , ö. I think I’ve found out the reason for the confusion. If you click on the picture in the article, you receive v0.1 of the font, but if you click on the text “download Chunk Five with accents” in the article then you get v0.2, which does contain the characters you’re looking for.

Hope this helps.

Hi mates! I work for a Brazilian newspaper and we would like to use in some of ours products Chunk font. So, in portuguese language we use in some words these kind of accents: õ ã… We noticed that in this chunk font we cannot have this type, how can I manage to sort it out? Sincerely yours. Fred.

Hi Maurice, really love your job!
This font is cool, but missing some characters.
Would you be so kind please and could you add CE characters?
Such as: ěščřžýáíéůúťďň + ĚŠČŘŽÝÁÍÉÚŮŤĎŇ

I would do this, but dont know how 🙁

Thanks in advance!
