You also can have access to the older versions of the files if you are a nostalgic person. Check all our design history on our fontlog page.

The 2019 update of Ouroboros, called Protean, contains several new features. The font now fully supports Vietnamese. It also has a basic Cyrillic set, with additional Ukrainian, Serbian and Macedonian support, and some historical forms (as suggested by Cyrillic users). The alchemical set has been completed and fully reviewed for improved contrast, proportions and kerning. Some other symbols have been added, such as a full zodiac set. Spacing and kerning has been improved, making it subtly more relaxed. More than one hundred ligatures have been set as default (they were previously discretionary ligatures), making Ouroboros more versatile and changing than ever.

Improved some curves & added some symbols suggested by artist Hélène Mourrier. More queer/alternative-culture symbols will be added in the future.
