Font in four weights, reminiscent of 1920s coffee house typography
Yanone Kaffeesatz was first published in 2004. Its Bold is reminiscent of 1920s coffee house typography, while the rather thin fonts bridge the gap to present times. You can witness Kaffeesatz use on German fresh-water gyms, Dubai mall promos and New Zealand McDonalds ads. And of course on coffee and foodstuff packaging and cafe design around the globe. . In 2010 it was decided to be re-released under the SIL Open Font License to make it possible to include in software bundles or web font services like Googles Font Directory.

ancient Greek oblique font
From the middle of the 19th century an italic font with many calligraphic overtones was introduced into Greek printing. Its source is unknown, but it almost certainly was the product of a German or Italian foundry. In the first type specimen printed in Greece by the typecutter K. Miliadis (1850), the font was listed anonymously along others of 11pts and in the Gr. Doumas' undated specimen appeared as «11pt Greek inclined». For most of the second half of the century the type was used extensively as an italic for emphasis in words, sentences or excerpts. In 1889, the folio size Type Specimen of Anestis Konstantinidis' publishing, printing and type founding establishment also included the type as «Greek inclined [9 & 12 pt]». . Nevertheless, the excessively calligraphic style of the characters, combined with the steep and uncomfortable obliqueness of the capitals, was out of favour in the 20th century and the type did not survive the conformity of the mechanical type cutting and casting. The font has been digitally revived, as part of our typographic tradition, by George D. Matthiopoulos and is part of GFS' type library under the name GFS Solomos, in commemoration of the great Greek poet of the 19th century, Dionisios Solomos.
typewrite like sans-serif font
This font remembers of a typewrite font without the serifs. The latin letters assume pretty much of a "Swiss" feel, so the font was named after the Jura region on the border between France and Switzerland. . Almost all of the Latin-1 range is represented (omitting only superscript numerals, fractions, and the pilcrow).
