Nyala
Nyala is an Ethiopic font designed by John Hudson and Geraldine Wade. The Nyala font features Ethiopic harmonized with Latin characters for bilingual documents. The Nyala typeface is named for the Mountain Nyala, a native antelope found in the mountains of Ethiopia. The Ethiopic characters in the Nyala font were designed by John Hudson based on initial drawings by Geraldine Wade. The Latin characters in Nyala were designed by John Hudson to be in harmony with the Ethiopic characters. The Nyala font supports Ethiopic, Amharic, Tigrinya and Tigre, and also other modern tongues of Ethiopia and Eritrea including Ge'ez - the ancient scriptural language.

NOTE: You must have an application program that supports Unicode-encoded complex script fonts, such as OpenOffice or Microsoft Office for Windows (Mac Office does not currently support complex script fonts). Adobe Creative Suite users must have the Middle Eastern version, or a plug-in such as IndicPlus.
