Hargitai's Antique Fonts [Henrik Hargitai]

Henrik Hargitai (Budapest, Hungary) digitized a number of alphabets and is making them freely available to the world. He is a scientist (astronomer) at Eötvös Loránd University's Institute of Geography and Earth Sciences (Planetary Science Research Group) and Institute for Art Theory and Media Studies. His fonts:

  • Landerer Pesti Hirlap 1843 PIC2: created from a copy of an 1843 issue of Pesti Hirlap, a daily newspaper printed by Landerer and Heckenast's Printing House in Pest.
  • Magyar Piktogram: Various pictograms related to Hungarian art, geography, culture, folk motifs. Including maps of Hungary, ornaments (Aldus letters etc.), peasant portraits, coat of arms, and cartouches.
  • Pointer Ornaments: arrows and fists.
  • Primus Antique HU (three styles): Primus was the only font for newspaper Linotype machine typesetting between 1950 and 1990 in Hungary. The letters of this font are digitized from a copy of the Fövárosi Mozimüsor (Capital Movie Guide) from the 1960s.
  • Widmanstadius Grecz 1610 (2003, four styles): A renaissance antiqua that is based on a Hungarian language Bible printed in the Printing House of George Widmanstadius in the town of Graz in 1610.
