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.)
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.
We cannot state anything definitively about Lucida offerings from Adobe, but we are told they do not work well with TeX. We advise asking before buying.
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.

TUG gratefully acknowledges Charles Bigelow and Kris Holmes for their enthusiasm in enhancing their magnum opus. Thanks also to Michael Sharpe, Hans Hagen, Mikael Sundqvist, and Khaled Hosny for doing the technical work, over many years now, and to Mojca Miklavec and Hans Hagen for originally promulgating the Lucida OpenType project. Thanks to the additional volunteers for their testing, suggestions, and advice along the way: Taco Hoekwater, Bogusław Jackowski, Steve Peter, Will Robertson, Ulrik Vieth, Bruno Voisin, and to Barbara Beeton and Stephen Moye (then) at the AMS, who helped get the project off the ground. Thanks to all the others who have sent in bug reports and suggestions, and finally to everyone who has ordered the fonts, thus making it worthwhile to keep the project going.
