American Philological Association
[Donald Mastronarde]

Association which published a free Greek Opentype font, KadmosU (2005). New Athena Unicode (2004-2010) is also free: New Athena Unicode is a freeware multilingual font distributed by the American Philological Association. It follows the latest version (5.1) of the Unicode standard and includes characters for English and Western European languages, polytonic Greek, Coptic, Old Italic, and Demotic Egyptian transliteration (and Arabic transliteration), as well as metrical symbols and other characters used by classical scholars. New Athena Unicode is a "smart font" that includes OpenType ligatures allowing the display of composed characters not recognized by Unicode but needed by scholars. I am not sure that I am right, but the Greekkeys pafge makes me believe that Donald Mastronarde (a Professor a UC Berkeley) of the American Philological Association is responsible for the creation and upkeep of New Athena Unicode.

[Thomas Milo]

Thomas Milo founded DecoType in Amsterdam in 1985, together with Peter Somers and Mirjam Somers. They introduced the notion of dynamic fonts, and developed Ruqaa (1987), licensed by Microsoft. They also developed the DecoTypeSetter, which was included in Adobe PageMaker MiddleEast. Deco Type is perhaps best known for its extensive DTP Naskh family, which has hundreds of variations of all letterforms, and permitted people to typeset calligraphic Arabic, as it is in a style emulating the hand of the Ottoman calligrapher Mustafa Izzet Efendi. Part of that package is the DecoType Authentic Naskh typeface. DecoType donated a custom version of Naskh to the Unicode Consortium for printing the Arabic parts of their manuals. Other fonts include DTP Nastaaliq. Thomas Milo is also a specialist of Turkic and Slavic linguistics. His company's beautiful fonts sell for 125 USD: P.O. Box 55518, 1007 NA Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Thomas Milo's talks about Arabic fonts at the 1998 RIDT in Saint-Malo and at ATypI in Copenhagen in 2001 were masterful performances---entertaining and insightful from start to finish. From Milo's site: DecoType contributes fonts and Arabic Calligraphy applications to Microsoft Office Arabic Edition; to Adobe PageMaker Middle East DecoType provides a special interface for Calligraphic typesetting; to the MacOS 9 it contributes Arabic fonts.

In 2009, Thomas Milo received the second Dr. Peter Karow Award for Font Technology&Digital Typography for the development of the ACE layout engine (the heart of the Tasmeem plugin for InDesign ME) for Arabic text setting. The citation reads: Thomas Milo and his company DecoType developed with ACE, which is an acronym for 'Arabic Calligraphic Engine', new advanced technology for Arabic text setting, which needs a far more sophisticated approach than for instance the Latin script, based on a thorough analysis of the Arabic script. Not only served Milo's typographic research as the fundament for the ACE technology, clearly it also formed a basis for the development of the OpenType format, although this is a less known and acknowledged fact.

In 2017, he developed the new electronic Mus'haf Muscat at the behest of the Ministry of Endowments and Religious Affairs of the Sultanate of Oman.

Ihap Hulusi Görey

Turkish graphic designer and painter, b. 1898, Cairo, d. 1986, Istanbul, who was well-known for his posters which were heavily influenced by German Gebrauchsgrafik, and in particular by Ludwig Hohlwein of Munich, a city in which he studied for five years. He is considered by many as the father of modern Turkish graphic design.

Wiki: Ihap Hulusi's father was a well-known architect in Cairo and he wanted his son become a successful diplomat. For this Ihap Hulusi was sent to English schools in Cairo. However, his primary interest was in painting. In the meantime, he took lessons in painting by mail from Germany. In 1920, after graduating from the high school, Ihap Hulusi went to Munich, Germany, and studied painting for five years specializing in illustrations. Following his return, ─░hap Hulusi's father enrolled him to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Istanbul against his will. So Ihap Hulusi dropped off after a while and devoted himself to commercial graphic art.

He worked for 45 years as a ticket designer for the Turkish State lottery. He designed the bottle labels of various products of the Turkish State Monopoly for 35 years. In addition, he illustrated posters for the famous brands like the British whisky John Haig, Italian Cinzano and Fernet Branca. [Google] [More]  ⦿

Kamal Mansour

Kamal Mansour, educated in Cairo, used to run Kappa Type in Palo Alto, CA, and was involved in software, fonts and keyboards for some languages. Thereafter, he joined Monotype in 1996 where he is now involved in OpenType implementations for various scripts including Latin, Arabic, and Hebrew. At Monotype, from his base in Los Altos, CA, his responsibilities includes growing the library of non-Latin scripts, investigating potential products, in-house consulting, as well as assisting customers with font specifications.

He spoke at ATypI 2005 in Helsinki on Nastaliq style through open type, about which he writes: Designed by Pakistani calligrapher Mirza Jamil, Noori Nastaliq is a calligraphic Urdu script typeface originally devised for use on a Monotype imagesetter in the 1970s. Once this proprietary equipment became obsolete, Noori Nastaliq could not be readily implemented for many years with the digital technology at the time. With the advent and maturation of OpenType technology, Noori Nastaliq is once again alive. In spite of the many graphic complexities of Nastaliq style such as its oblique alignment to the baseline and its cursive connections, OpenType proved sufficient for the task.

In 2015, Patrick Giasson and Kamal Mansour co-designed the Arabic script typeface Bustani at Monotype. Bustani is the first OpenType font to offer full classical Naskh contextual shaping. It covers Arabic, Farsi and Urdu. Bustani won an award at TDC 2016.

Khaled Hosny is a physician in Egypt. He loves Arabic and its type, and is interested in every aspect of letter forms and typography. A hobbyist translator, programmer and font developer, he supports software freedom and is actively participating in the free software community. Sourcefirge link.

Designer of Punk Nova (2010), a free OpenType implementation of Don Knuth's Punk font, based on modified Metapost sources by Taco Hoekwater and Hans Hagan, dating from 2008. Hosny writes: Punk is a dynamic font, every time a glyph is requested Matafont draws a unique instance of it. On the other hand, OpenType is static, glyph outlines are drawn once and stored in the font and the renderer can not alter those outlines. To emulate the dynamic nature of Punk, we generate several alternate shapes of each glyph and store them in the font. Alternate shapes are mapped to the base character using OpenType [Randomize] feature (rand), which tells the renderer to select glyphs randomly from the list of alternate shapes. Pick up the free Punk Nova from CTAN or Open Font Library.

XITS (2011) is a Times-like typeface for mathematical and scientific publishing, based on STIX fonts. The main mission of XITS is to provide a version of STIX fonts enriched with the OpenType MATH extension, making it suitable for high quality mathematic typesetting with OpenType MATH capable layout systems, like MS Office 2007 and the new TeX engines XeTeX and LuaTeX. This free OFL package was developed by Khaled Hosny. Inside the fonts, we read Copyright (c) 2001-2010 by the STI Pub Companies, consisting of the American Chemical Society, the American Institute of Physics, the American Mathematical Society, the American Physical Society, Elsevier, Inc., and The Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers, Inc.

Euler OTF (2010) are OpenType Math fonts based on Hermann Zapf's Euler and implemented by Taco Hoekwater, Hans Hagen, and Khaled Hosny. Named Neo-Euler (2009-2010), it covers Latin, Greek and has a full blackletter set of glyphs. Copyright Hosny and the American Mathematical Society. Open Font Library link.

In 2010-2011, Hosny developed the free Amiri font (OFL; dedicated web page): Amiri font is an open font revival of the Arabic Naskh typeface designed and first used by Bulaq Press in Cairo (also known as Amiria Press) in the early part of the twentieth century. Amiri's uniqueness comes from its superb balance between the beauty of Naskh calligraphy and the requirements of elegant typography. Amiri is most suitable for running text and book printing. See also here, at Google Web Fonts), and at OFL.

In 2015, he created the free calligraphic Arabic typeface (in Ruqaa style) Aref Ruqaa. The Latin part is based on AMS Euler. Google Fonts link.

In 2015, Khaled Hosny and Santiago Orozco cooperated on the Latin / Arabic typeface Reem Kufi. Github link. Khaled, who designed the Arabic part, explains: Reem Kufi is a Fatimid-style decorative Kufic typeface, as seen in the historical mosques of Cairo. It is largely based on the Kufic designs of the late master of Arabic calligraphy, Mohammed Abdul Qadir, who revived this art in the 20th century and formalized its rules.

In 2016, Khaled Hosny designed Mada (Google Fonts), a modernist, unmodulated Arabic typeface inspired by road signage seen around Cairo, Egypt. The Latin component is a slightly modified version of Source Sans Pro, led by Paul Hunt at Adobe Type. [Google] [More]  ⦿

[Thomas Milo]

Tasmeem is an entire Arabic typesetting package integrated within Adobe's InDesign. This Adobe product returns to the beautiful Arabic typography, and is a big step forward, in my view. It includes two new font sets, Emiri and Naskh. Emiri is a revival of the typeface of the Emeeriyyah printing house in Cairo. Adobe's plug: With this typeface it is possible to create Unicode-based searchable Koran text with the familiar appearance of todays printed editions. Tasmeems shaping and spacing controls makes Emiri particularly effective for literary and creative productions. Please note that this font can only be used in Tasmeem. The last sentence is ominous and perhaps a first step towards a new trend---fonts that can only be used in one product. They won't sell you a Mercedes radio if you won't buy a Mercedes. The Nasqh font, in contrast, can be had for 200 dollars. Thomas Milo of DecoType ACE explains: Tasmeem is not from Adobe as such, but Adobe InDesign ME with a DecoType ACE-based user interface plugin, made by WinSoft. Naskh is made by me and Mirjam Somers, my partner. Emiri is made by Mirjam Somers and me.<.i> New Tasmeem developments, all be DecoType ACE: Nassim Alef by Titus Nemeth, Qarandash Beh by Mirjam Somers, Mehdi by Saad Abulhab, Ruqah.

[Jonathan Perez]

French foundry, est. 2008, by Jonathan Perez and Laurent Bourcellier. Graduates from the Ecole Estienne in Paris, they have made the following fonts:

  • Chapitre (2013): It is based on the principle of the endless knot, a symbol used particularly in Hinduism and Buddhism. As its name implies, an endless knot has no beginning and no end. It also echoes many works in the history of writing which you must be familiar with, like Irish and Anglo-Saxon illuminations of the Middle Ages or Flemish calligraphy of the 17th century. Chapitre won an award at TDC 2014.
  • Colvert (2012): A family comprosed of four families, Colvert Arabic (by Kristyan Sarkis), Colvert Cyrillic (by Natalia Chuvatin), Colvert Greek (by Irene Vlachou) and Colvert Latin (by Jonathan Perez).
  • The free font Ifao N Copte, a Unicode-compatible font with 809 glyphs for Coptic. By Perez.
  • Unicopte (by Bourcellier) and Copte Scripte (2008, by Bourcellier and Perez; it won an award at TDC2 2009). Discussion.
  • A hieroglyphic font. By Perez.
  • Joos (2009) took its inspiration from an italic, ca. 1530, by Joos Lambrecht, from Gent, Belgium, who was one of the great printers and punchcutters of the 16th century.
  • Extensions of Syntax and ITC Slimbach for Vietnamese (with the help of Pauline Nuñez, Valentine Proust and Mathieu Réguer) for the National Museum of Asian Arts Guimet.
Jonathan Perez is a graphic and type designer. He graduated in 2007 from Ecole Estienne in Paris with a provocatively-titled thesis, Giambattista Bodoni, génie ou assassin?. In 2009, Jonathan set up his own site, JonathanPerez.cm, where he plans to publish some Latin typefaces. Fontspace has some free fonts by Perez, such as Ifao n Copte.
