Fonts for Scholars [David J. Perry]

Cardo is a Unicode font under development by David J. Perry from Rye, New York. Covering European languages, as well as Hebrew, Greek/Coptic and Greek Extended, it is free for non-commercial use. He writes: "This font is my version of a typeface cut for the Renaissance printer Aldus Manutius and first used to print Pietro Bembo's book De Aetna. This font has been revived in modern times under several names (Bembo, Aetna, Aldine 401). I chose it mainly because it is a classic book face, suitable for scholarship, and also because it is easier to get various diacritics sized and positioned for legibility with this design than with some others. I added a set of Greek characters designed to harmonize well on the page with the Roman letters as well as many other characters useful to classicists and medievalists."
