SummaryGFS Bodoni Classic oblique Greek font
DescriptionGiambattista Bodoni was the most prolific Italian typecutter of the 18th century. While he worked in the Vatican Press he was involved in the typecutting of “exotic” languages for which catholic literature was printed. When he established his own press in Parma he did publish many books of the classics with his own Greek typefaces in the last quarter 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 as free ware 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.
