ABOUT







TeX Gyre Project

The TeX Gyre Project was started in 2006 as the brainchild of Hans Hagen (NTG). It is described in The New Font Project (Hans Hagen (NTG), Jerzy Ludwichowski (GUST) and Volker RW Schaa (DANTE e.V.), presented at BachoTeX2, 2006). From the project, which is being implemented by GUST's e-foundry guys, Boguslaw Jacko Jackowski and Janusz M. Nowacki aka Ulan: All of the Ghostscript font families will eventually become gyrefied as the result of the project. Gyrefication, also called LM-ization, was first applied to the Computer Modern Fonts and their various generalizations with the result known as the Latin Modern (LM) Fonts. The Gyre fonts each have 1200 glyphs that cover basically all European scripts (including Latin, Cyrillic and Greek), and have Vietnamese characters added by Han The Thanh, and Cyrillic glyphs by Valek Filippov. Available in Type 1 and OpenType, they come under a very liberal license (free, modifiable, unlimited use, and a request to rename altered fonts). The TeX Gyre fonts are

  • Adventor: family of four sansserif fonts, based on the URW Gothic L family, which in turn is based on ITC Avant Garde Gothic, designed by Herb Lubalin and Tom Carnase in 1970. Open Font Library link.
  • Bonum (2006), based on the URW Bookman L family: TeXGyreBonum-Bold, TeXGyreBonum-BoldItalic, TeXGyreBonum-Italic, TeXGyreBonum-Regular.
  • Cursor: based on URW Nimbus Mono L, which itself mimics Bud Kettler's Courier.
  • Heros (2007): based on the URW Nimbus Sans L family, but heavily extended---eight typefaces of 1200 glyphs each. With the release of Heros, their QuasiSwiss fonts becomes obsolete. This is, in fact, the Gyre version of Miedinger's Helvetica. .
  • Pagella (2006), based on the URW Palladio L family (and thus, indirectly, Zapf's Palatino): TeXGyrePagella-Bold, TeXGyrePagella-BoldItalic, TeXGyrePagella-Italic, TeXGyrePagella-Regular. In 2013, we find Tex Gyre Pagella Math in opentype format, by Boguslaw Jackowski, Piotr Strzelczyk and Piotr Pianowski. Greek symbols were taken from the Math Pazo font by Diego Puga. The calligraphic alphabet was taken from the Odstemplik font. The Fraktur is based on Euler. The sans part is DejaVu Sans, and the monospaced alphabet is taken from Latin Modern Mono Light Condensed.
  • Termes (2006), based on the Nimbus Roman No9 L family (and thus, by transitivity, Stanley Morison's Times-Roman): TeXGyreTermes-Bold, TeXGyreTermes-BoldItalic, TeXGyreTermes-Italic, TeXGyreTermes-Regular. In 2013, we find Tex Gyre Termes Math in opentype format, by Boguslaw Jackowski, Piotr Strzelczyk and Piotr Pianowski. The Fraktur part is based on Peter Wiegel's Leipziger Fraktur. The sans serif part uses TeX Gyre Heros. The monospaced part is based on TeX Gyre Cursor. In 2017, the Open Font Library published a slightly updated and darker TG Roman.
  • Schola (2006, based on the URW Century Schoolbook L family, designed by Morris Fuller Benton in 1919: TeXGyreSchola-Bold, TeXGyreSchola-BoldItalic, TeXGyreSchola-Italic, TeXGyreSchola-Regular.
  • Chorus (2007): derived from handwritten letterforms of the Italian Renaissance as used by Hermann Zapf in ITC Zapf Chancery (1979). TeX Gyre Chorus is based on the URW Chancery L Medium Italic font, but heavily extended. The Vietnamese and Cyrillic characters were added by Han The Thanh and Valek Filippov, respectively.
