smart greek typeface revival
DescriptionGiambattista Bodoni was the most prolific Italian typecutter of the 18th century. He was among the first European typecutters to move away from the byzantine cursive tradition with the numerous ligatures which was the norm until then. His Greek types influenced many subsequent designers, yet they fell in disuse by the middle of the 19th century. GFS presented Bodoni's original Greek typeface in the commemorative edition of Pindar's Olympian Odes (2004), in digital version by George D. Matthiopoulos, and is now available for the general public. In the OpenType features, under ligatures, one may alternately use diphthongs with the accents placed in between the characters, as Giambattista Bodoni did when setting greek texts.
