ABOUT







Andreas Nolda

Lecturer at the Department of German Studies of the University of Szeged, Hungary. Designer of the free Utopia Nova font family for Latin, Greek and Cyrillic (2014-2015), which is a modified version of Andrey V. Panov's Heuristica font family, which in turn is based on the Utopia Type 1 fonts, designed by Robert Slimbach for Adobe and licensed to the TeX Users Group (TUG) for free modification and redistribution. Open Font Library link. The changes applied to Heuristica:

  • proportional figures
  • Greek glyphs from the Fourier fonts
  • a stylistic set with longer slashes, matching the parentheses in height and depth
  • kerning for pairs of slashes like in "http://" (a Heuristica issue Panov refused to fix)
  • small-cap substitution table for ligatures without corresponding small-cap glyphs (fixing another Heuristica issue)

Utopia Nova was renamed Lingua Franca a day after it was first posted on Open Font Library. Open Font Library link for Andreas Nolda.

In 2016, we find an extension of Utopia Nova by Stefan Peev called Linguistics Pro on CTAN, where useful TeX support files are added as well. See also Font Squirrel.
