The Frederika2016 Typeface

with 2 comments

Currently, I am working on the digitization of the Fredirika font by Herman Zapf. Originally, the font was supposed to be the Greek counterpart of the Virtuosa font by the same designer. I have completed the digitization of the Greek monotonic part and now I am working on the polytonic part of it. To the best of my knowledge, there was no polytonic support so I have to improvise. So far I got help from Dimitrios Filippou, Yorgos Mathiopoulos, and Yiannis Kontovos. Here is a sample text typeset with this font.

UPDATE: I have completed also the polytonic part fo the font. And the following text was set with Frederika2016 (that is the official name of the font).

UPDATE: An initial release of the font is available from https://www.ctan.org/pkg/frederika2016
