A font that extends URW Chancery L.

The TeX Gyre Chorus font is based on the URW Chancery L Medium Italic. The original font, ITC Zapf Chancery, was designed in 1979 by Hermann Zapf who was inspired by handwritten letterforms of the Italian Renaissance.

Chorus has been greatly extended, and contains more than 800 glyphs (unlike the rest of the TeX Gyre bundle, there are no Greek glyphs, and there are no small caps). The font is available both in Adobe Type 1 and in OpenType formats, and LaTeX support (for use with a variety of encodings) is provided. Vietnamese characters were added by Han The Thanh.

TeX Gyre Chorus is distributed as part of the TeX Gyre collection

The authors are Bogusław Jackowski and Janusz Marian Nowacki.
