Mayan typefaces



[The Mayan script (or Mayan hieroglyphs) was the writing system of the Maya civilization of Mesoamerica. The earliest inscriptions were found in Guatemala in the third century before Christ. It was in use until the 17th century. The Mayans inhabited southern Mexico, Guatemala, Belize, El Salvador and Honduras. The image above is from the Dresden codex.]

Alexandra Leopoldovna Gophmann

Russian designer of typefaces who collaborates with Ivan Zeifert and specializes in revivals, cyrillizations and beautiful digitizations, some of them done with Anatole Gophmann. There have been complaints about her practice of borrowing fonts from type designers without asking. One typophile writes: I have cracked open fonts she claims as hers, Bolero, Bickham and others, she has copied and pasted glyphs, copyright data, added Cyrillic and changed the copyright string. As an example, Angelica is a copy of Alejandro Paul's Miss Fajardose. Alejandro has drawn the numerals in his font in 2004 to accompany the letters found in an old catalog of alphabets. There is no other source of the numerals, and Angelica has them. Michael Clark writes: I initiated a battle with the illustrious Alexandra "Bitch" from Russia who has renamed Pouty (FontBureau) and copyrighted [it as] Bolero. She and her partner Anatoly shithead. Available on Fonts101.com for anyone who wants it free. The ass's site, Jagdesh, is in Pakistan and we cannot touch him. 260+ viewings and 140+ downloads. Let's see that is 1400$ I will never see! Others have complained as well about her practice of taking and extending fonts without permission. Anyway, her "fonts" are:

Daniel Johnson

Designer at the Open Font Library of Triad Postnaya (2013, an old Church Slavonic typeface and its Latin simulation twin), Stanislav Caps (2013), Pacaya (2013, a medium-weight sans), Jura (2011, in the style of Eurostile), Didact Gothic (2010, a simple and readable sans i in the form most often used in elementary classrooms), Judson (2010, designed for African literacy), Megrim (2010, a monoline drawing table sans), Aguardiente (2010, heavy sans), Deka (2010, a monospace font designed for very small display sizes), Rahel (2009, Hebrew), Sacco-Vanzetti (2009, sans), Travelogue (2008), Grana Padano (2010), Pfennig (2010, an extensive humanist sans family) and Jura (2009, sans family with support for Burmese, Cyrillic and Greek).

Johnson explains: Jura is a family of sans-serif fonts in the Eurostile vein. It was originally inspired by some work I was doing for the FreeFont project in designing a Kayah Li range for FreeMono. (Kayah Li is a language used by a minority people group in Burma. Because the Burmese government suppresses the teaching of minority scripts, the Kayah Li script is taught only in schools in refugee camps in Thailand.) I wanted to create a Roman alphabet using the same kinds of strokes and curves as the Kayah Li glyphs, and thus Jura was born.

Triod Postnaja (2010) attempts to mimic the typefaces used to publish Old Church Slavonic service books prior to the 20th century. It also provides a range of Latin letters in the same style.

He contributed to the GNU Freefont project. In particular, he created by hand a Cherokee range specially for FreeFont to be "in line with the classic Cherokee typefaces used in 19th century printing", but also to fit well with ranges previously in FreeFont. Then he made Unified Canadian Syllabics in Sans, and a Cherokee and Kayah Li in Mono. And never to be outdone by himself, then he did UCAS Extended and Osmanya. His GNU Freefont ranges:

  • Armenian (serif) (U+0530-U+058F)
  • Cherokee (U+13A0-U+13FF)
  • Unified Canadian Aboriginal Syllabics (U+1400-U+167F)
  • UCAS Extended (U+18B0-U+18F5)
  • Kayah Li (U+A900-U+A92F)
  • Tifinagh (U+2D30-U+2D7F)
  • Vai (U+A500-U+A62B)
  • Latin Extended-D (Mayanist letters) (U+A720-U+A7FF)
  • Osmanya (U+10480-U+104a7)

    GNU Freefont (or: Free UCS Outline Fonts)
    [Steve White]

    The GNU Freefont is continuously being updated to become a large useful Unicode monster. GNU FreeFont is a free family of scalable outline fonts, suitable for general use on computers and for desktop publishing. It is Unicode-encoded for compatability with all modern operating systems. There are serif, Sans and Mono subfamilies. Also called the "Free UCS Outline Fonts", this project is part of the larger Free Software Foundation. Scans: FreeMono, FreeMonoBold, FreeMonoBoldOblique, FreeMonoOblique, FreeSans, FreeSansBold, FreeSansBoldOblique, FreeSansOblique, FreeSerif, FreeSerifBold, FreeSerifBoldItalic, FreeSerifItalic. The original head honcho was Primoz Peterlin, the coordinator at the Institute of Biophysics of the University of Ljubljana, Slovenia. In 2008, Steve White took over. Participants and credits, as of the end of 2010, with Unicode range responsibilities:

    • URW++ Design&Development GmbH. URW++ donated a set of 35 core PostScript Type 1 fonts to the Ghostscript project.
      • Basic Latin (U+0041-U+007A)
      • Latin-1 Supplement (U+00C0-U+00FF)
      • Latin Extended-A (U+0100-U+017F)
      • Spacing Modifier Letters (U+02B0-U+02FF)
      • Mathematical Operators (U+2200-U+22FF)
      • Block Elements (U+2580-U+259F)
      • Dingbats (U+2700-U+27BF)
    • Yannis Haralambous and John Plaice. Yannis Haralambous and John Plaice are the authors of Omega typesetting system, which is an extension of TeX. Its first release, aims primarily at improving TeX's multilingual abilities. In Omega all characters and pointers into data-structures are 16-bit wide, instead of 8-bit, thereby eliminating many of the trivial limitations of TeX. Omega also allows multiple input and output character sets, and uses programmable filters to translate from one encoding to another, to perform contextual analysis, etc. Internally, Omega uses the universal 16-bit Unicode standard character set, based on ISO-10646. These improvements not only make it a lot easier for TeX users to cope with multiple or complex languages, like Arabic, Indic, Khmer, Chinese, Japanese or Korean, in one document, but will also form the basis for future developments in other areas, such as native color support and hypertext features. ... Fonts for UT1 (omlgc family) and UT2 (omah family) are under development: these fonts are in PostScript format and visually close to Times and Helvetica font families.
      • Latin Extended-B (U+0180-U+024F)
      • IPA Extensions (U+0250-U+02AF)
      • Greek (U+0370-U+03FF)
      • Armenian (U+0530-U+058F)
      • Hebrew (U+0590-U+05FF)
      • Arabic (U+0600-U+06FF)
      • Currency Symbols (U+20A0-U+20CF)
      • Arabic Presentation Forms-A (U+FB50-U+FDFF)
      • Arabic Presentation Forms-B (U+FE70-U+FEFF)
    • Yannis Haralambous and Wellcome Institute. In 1994, The Wellcome Library The Wellcome Institute for the History of Medicine 183 Euston Road, London NW1 2BE, England, commissioned Mr. Haralambous to produce a Sinhalese font for them.

    • Young U. Ryu at the University of Texas at Dallas is the author of Txfonts, a set of mathematical symbols designed to accompany text typeset in Times or its variants. In the documentation, Young adresses the design of mathematical symbols: "The Adobe Times fonts are thicker than the CM fonts. Designing math fonts for Times based on the rule thickness of Times =,, +, /, <, etc. would result in too thick math symbols, in my opinion. In the TX fonts, these glyphs are thinner than those of original Times fonts. That is, the rule thickness of these glyphs is around 85% of that of the Times fonts, but still thicker than that of the CM fonts." Ranges: Arrows (U+2190-U+21FF), Mathematical Symbols (U+2200-U+22FF).

The font files were written in custom file format, while tools for conversion into Metafont and PostScript Type 1 were also supplied. The Wadalab Kanji Comittee has later been dismissed, and the resulting files can be now found on the FTP server of the Depertment of Mathematical Engineering and Information Physics, Faculty of Engineering, University of Tokyo: Hiragana (U+3040-U+309F), Katakana (U+30A0-U+30FF).

    • The Sinhala font project has taken the glyphs from Yannis Haralambous' Sinhala font, to produce a Unicode TrueType font, LKLUG. These glyphs were for a while included in FreeFont: Sinhala (U+0D80-U+0DFF).

He has worked for various multi-cultural advertising agencies including LatinWorks (Austin, TX), XL Alliance, and BBDO Contrapunto in Madrid.

    In 2016, he published the display sans typeface Kawak that is characterized by an asymmetric mouth of its C, at Latinotype, which wrote: Kawak is a sans inspired by Mayan glyphs from the Tzolk'in ritual cycle. Kawak marries modernist typographic tradition with Pre-Hispanic formalism, creating a perfect blend between cleanliness, readability, objectivity, and the Mayan super-ellipse. Kawak was designed by Javier Viramontes during the Type@Cooper, Extended Program under the careful guidance of Jesse Reagan and an amazing repertoire of visiting critics. The project was finalized by Alfonso Garcia and the Latinotype team. [Google] [MyFonts] [More]  ⦿

Miguel contributed greatly to the early success of the Chilean typefoundry Latinotype which he cofounded in 2007 with Felipe Soto in Concepción, Chile. In 2011, he cofounded Los Andes Type. Some time in or just before 2015, he broke his relationship with Latinotype. In 2015, he set up ABC Alphabets by Chileans together with Tania Chacana. His typefaces:

    Before Latinotype, Miguel Hernandez created many pixel typefaces. The typefaces made in that period before 2007 include:

    • The truly perfect pixel font family Fundamental (2003).
    • The pixel font Sligthest.
    • The sans family Chile (2004), Chile Sans (2005). Chile Sans won at the Tipos Latinos 2008 competition.
    • The highway signage typeface Optica (2004).
    • The fifties diner-style screen font Detroit 45 (2002).
    • The bitmap display font Kuppa (2003).
    • The church stone engraving simulation typeface Finaita (2002).
    • The Western pixel font Arizona (2003, perfect!).
    • The bitmap handwriting font Wolfgang Bold.
    • The screen font Screenager (2002).
    • The funky bitmap font Groobit.
    • Minority (2002, a very small screen font).
    • Fundamental (2002, a very original screen font, with ligatures for "rr" and "LL", for example), which was subsequently published at tipografia.cl.
    • The ultimate pixel font Miguel's Three Dots (2002).
    • The pixel display font Circa (2002).
    • The pixel fonts Capitalista, Garadot (2003, a fantastic pixel version of an elegant Garamond) and Harmonica.
    • The script pixel fonts Anticrisp (2003) and Essential Bold.
    • The gray pixel typeface Sushi (2004, hiragana, katakana, Latin).
    • The serif font Quetzal (2003).
    • The bitmap family Sugar (2003).
    • The bitmap family Apple (2004, based on Apple's Chicago).
    • At Atomic Media, he released Carbona and Carbona Bold in 2002, as well as 12 bitmap fonts in 2003: Maya, Fundamental, Azteca, Tekilla, Aymara, Minority, Quadratis, Carnoa Plain&Bold, Machina Typewriter, Dotic (blackletter), Mezcal, Circa.
    • In 2004, he joined Ultra Pixel Fonts, where he made the pixel typefaces Orbital, Sugar, Odyssey, Solar, Voltage, Jetson.
    • At Latinotype, he made Picara Sans (2007, an organic sans), Cadena (2007, a rounded sans which won at Tipos Latinos 2008), Love (2007, ultra fat rounded) and Mote (2007, rounded sans display face).
    • Co-designer with Tania Chacana of ABC Normal (2016) which they motivate in this way: Normal is a working horse for the Modern Grotesk Canon, result of study of the models from Theinhardt, Renner, Novarese & Gerstner; avoiding to reveal a personal style.

    • Alfios. Lowercase upright Greek were designed in 1805 by Firmin Didot (1764-1836) and cut by Walfard and Vibert. The typeface, together with a complete printing house, was donated in 1821 to the new Greek state by Didot's son, Ambroise Firmin Didot (1790-1876). Lowercase italic Greek were designed in 1802 by Richard Porson (1757-1808) and cut by Richard Austin. They were first used by Cambridge University Press in 1810. Capitals, Latin and Cyrillic, as well as the complete bold weights, have been designed in an attempt to create a well-balanced font. The font covers the Windows Glyph List, Greek Extended, various typographic extras and some Open Type features (Numerators, Denominators, Fractions, Old Style Figures, Historical Forms, Stylistic Alternates, Ligatures); it is available in regular, italic, bold and bold italic.
    • Anaktoria. Douros: Grecs du roi was designed by Claude Garamond (1480-1561) between 1541 and 1544, commissioned by king Francis I of France, for the exclusive use by the Imprimerie Nationale in Paris. Greek in Akaktoria is based on a modern version of Grecs du roi prepared by Mindaugas Strockis in 2001. Lowercase Latin stems from the titles in the 1623 First Folio Edition of Shakespeare. Scott Mann & Peter Guither prepared a modern version for The Illinois Shakespeare Festival in 1995. Cyrillic has been designed to match the above Greek and Latin.
    • Analecta (2007, Byzantine style). An ecclesiastic scripts font, in Byzantine uncial style, covering Basic Latin, Greek and Coptic, some Punctuation and other Symbols, Coptic, typographica varia, Specials, Gothic and Deseret.
    • Anatolian
    • Aroania: In 1927, Victor Julius Scholderer (1880-1971), on behalf of the Society for the Promotion of Greek Studies, got involved in choosing and consulting the design and production of a Greek type called New Hellenic cut by the Lanston Monotype Corporation. He chose the revival of a round, and almost monoline type which had first appeared in 1492 in the edition of Macrobius, ascribable to the printing shop of Giovanni Rosso (Joannes Rubeus) in Venice. Aroania is a modern recast of Victor Scholderer's New Hellenic font, on the basis of Verdana.
    • Asea (Latin-Greek-Cyrillic).
    • Atavyros. Douros writes: Robert Granjon (1513-1589) produced his Parangonne Greque typeface (garmond size) at the instigation of Christophe Plantin as a counterpart to Garamond's Grec du roi, in Antwerp Holland, between 1560--1565. It was used in Plantin's multilingual Bible of 1572. Versions of Granjon's type were used for the 1692 edition of Diogenes Laertius and for the Greek-Dutch edition of the New Testament in 1698, both published by Henric Wetstenium in Amsterdam. A digital revival was prepared by Ralph P. Hancock for his Vusillus font in 1999. Latin and Cyrillic are based on a Goudy typeface.
    • Avdira. Douros: Upright is based on the lowercase Greek letters in the typeface used by Demetrios Damilas for the edition of Isocrates, published in Milan in 1493. A digital revival was prepared by Ralph P. Hancock for his Milan (Mediolanum) font in 2000. Italic Greek were designed in 1802 by Richard Porson (1757-1808) and cut by Richard Austin. They were first used by Cambridge University Press in 1810.
