    Alphabetum
    [Juan-José Marcos García]

    Juan-José Marcos García (b. Salamanca, Spain, 1963) is a professor of classics at the University of Plasencia in Spain. He has developed one of the most complete Unicode fonts named ALPHABETUM Unicode for linguistics and classical languages (classical&medieval Latin, ancient Greek, Etruscan, Oscan, Umbrian, Faliscan, Messapic, Picene, Iberic, Celtiberic, Gothic, Runic, Modern Greek, Cyrillic, Devanagari-based languages, Old&Middle English, Hebrew, Sanskrit, IPA, Ogham, Ugaritic, Old Persian, Old Church Slavonic, Brahmi, Glagolitic, Ogham, ancient Greek Avestan, Kharoshti, Old Norse, Old Icelandic, Old Danish and Old Nordic in general, Bengali, Hindi, Marathi, Phoenician, Cypriot, Linear B with plans for Glagolitic). This font has over 5000 glyphs, and contains most characters that concern classicists (rare symbols, signs for metrics, epigraphical symbols, "Saxon" typeface for Old English, etcetera). A demo font can be downloaded [see also Lucius Hartmann's place]. His Greek font Grammata (2002) is now called Ellenike.

    He also created a package of fonts for Latin paleography (medieval handwriting on parchments): Capitalis Elegans, Capitalis Rustica, Capitalis Monumentalis, Antiqua Cursiva Romana, Nova Cursiva Romana *2014), Uncialis, Semiuncialis, Beneventana Minuscula, Visigothica Minuscula, Luxoviensis Minuscula, Insularis Minuscula, Insularis Majuscula, Carolingia Minuscula, Gothica Textura Quadrata, Gothica Textura Prescissa, Gothica Rotunda, Gothica Bastarda, Gothica Cursiva, Bastarda Anglicana (2014) and Humanistica Antiqua. PDF entitled Fonts For Latin Palaeography (2008-2014), in which Marcos gives an enjoyable historic overview.

    Alphabetum is not Marcos's only excursion into type design. In 2011, he created two simulation fonts called Sefarad and Al Andalus which imitate Hebrew and Arabic calligraphy, respectively.

    Cyrillic OCS (2012) is a pair of Latin fonts that emulate Old Church Slavonic (old Cyrillic).

    In 2013, he created Cuneus, a cuneiform simulation typeface.

    Paleographic fonts for Greek (2014) has ten fonts designed by Marcos: Angular Uncial, Biblical Uncial, Coptic Uncial, Papyrus Uncial, Round Uncial, Slavonic Uncial, Sloping Uncial, Minuscule IX, Minuscule XI and Minuscule XV. These fonts are representative of the main styles of Greek handwriting used during the Classical World and Middle Ages on papyrus and parchments. There is also a short manual of Greek Paleography (71 pages) which explains the development of Greek handwriting from the fourth century B.C. to the invention of printing with movable type in the middle of the fifteenth A.D. He wrote a text book entitled History of Greek Typography: From the Invention of Printing to the Digital Age (in Spanish). See also here and here. [Google] [More]  ⦿

    Alter Littera
    [José Alberto Mauricio]

    Spanish foundry, est. ca. 2009, and on the web since 2012. It is located in Madrid. Alter Littera's fonts and web site are designed and managed by José Alberto Mauricio, who holds a doctorate degree in Economics and Business Administration, and is Associate Professor of Econometrics at the Universidad Complutense de Madrid.

    Alter Littera produces and markets opentype fonts reviving some of the most beautiful bookhands from medieval Western manuscripts, as well as some of the finest European and North-American typefaces from the mid-fifteenth through the early-twentieth centuries. The "Bookhand", "Oldtype" and "Initials" font collections cover gothic and/or blackletter letter forms.

    The typefaces:

    • Gutenberg (B42-type) A (Johann Gutenberg, Mainz, ca. 1455). Includes the full set of special characters, alternates and ligatures from The 42-line Bible. Under development.
    • Gutenberg (B42-type) B (Johann Gutenberg, Mainz, ca. 1455). Includes the full set of special characters, alternates and ligatures from The 42-line Bible. Published as Gutenberg B in 2012, this is a clean, smooth rendition of the B42-type used by Johann Gutenberg in his famous 42-line Bible. The font includes a comprehensive set of special characters, alternates and ligatures, plus Opentype features, that can be used for typesetting (almost) exactly as in Gutenberg's Bible and later incunabula. He says: The main historical sources used during the font design process were high-resolution scans from several printings of Gutenberg's Bible. Other sources were as follows: Kapr, A. (1996), Johann Gutenberg - The Man and his Invention, Aldershot: Scolar Press (ch. 7); De Hamel, C. (2001), The Book - A History of The Bible, London: Phaidon Press (ch. 8); Füssel, S. (2005), Gutenberg and the impact of printing, Burlington: Ashgate (ch. 1); and Man, J. (2009), The Gutenberg Revolution, London: Bantam (ch. 7).
    • Gutenberg (B42-type) C (Johann Gutenberg, Mainz, ca. 1455). Includes the full set of special characters, alternates and ligatures from The 42-line Bible. Published in 2012 as Gutenberg C, this is a slightly roughened version of the Oldtype "Gutenberg B" Font, simulating irregularities and ink spreads associated with old metal types, papers and parchments.
    • Psalterium (Psalter-type) (Peter Schoeffer, Mainz, 1457). Includes the full set of special characters, alternates and ligatures from The Mainz Psalter (Psalterium Moguntinum). He writes: A clean, smooth adaptation of the magnificent gothic types used by Johann Fust and Peter Schöffer in their famous Mainz Psalter (Psalterium Moguntinum) of 1457, also used in their Canon of the Mass (Canon Missae) of 1458, and in their Benedictine Psalter (Psalterium Benedictinum) of 1459. [Although these works were published after Gutenberg's break with Fust, it is generally agreed that Gutenberg was working along with Fust and Schöffer on the Mainz Psalter while the 42-line Bible was still being printed.] In addition to the usual standard characters for typesetting modern texts, the font includes a comprehensive set of special characters, uncial initials (adapted from both the Mainz Psalter and early sixteenth-century Dutch types by Henric Pieterszoon), alternates and ligatures, plus Opentype features, that can be used for typesetting (almost) exactly as in the Mainz Psalter and later incunabula.

He writes:A comprehensive and faithful rendition of Rudolf Koch's first release, usually referred to as "Fette Deutsche Schrift" or "Koch-Schrift". In addition to the regular character set, the font includes a large number of alternates and ligatures, plus two sets of ornamental initials (Initialen mit Zierstrichen und Punkten zur Koch-Schrift, and Initialen zur halbfetten deutschen Schrift). The main sources used during the font design process were a sample page from Hendlmeier, W. (1994), Kunstwerke der Schrift, Hannover: Bund für Deutsche Schrift und Sprache (p. 164), and several specimen sheets from the Gebrüder Klingspor Type Foundry for Koch's Deutsche Schrift type family.
    • Maximilian (Rudolf Koch, Offenbach am Main, 1914). Includes normal, small (Klein), and roman (Antiqua) capitals, plus ornamental capitals and alternates (Zierbuchstaben). Under development.

Produced in 2012 as Caslon Gotisch, it is a faithful adaptation of the "Caslon-Gotisch" type acquired (among several other types) by D. Stempel A.G. in 1919 from the Leipzig printer Wilhelm E. Drugulin, and further developed by Stempel in later years. Details: In addition to the usual standard characters for typesetting in modern Western languages, the font includes a comprehensive set of special characters, alternates and ligatures, plus Opentype features, that can be used for typesetting as in antique writings and printings. The main sources used during the font design process were as follows: A sample page from Typographische Mitteilungen - XXIII Jahrgang - Heft 2 (1926), and a sample page from Hendlmeier, W. (1994), Kunstwerke der Schrift, Hannover: Bund für Deutsche Schrift und Sprache (p. 37).
    • Gótico Cervantes (Fundición Tipográfica Richard Gans, Madrid, 1928). Under development.
    • Wallau (Rudolf Koch - Offenbach am Main, 1930). Includes German, Uncial, and Ornamental capitals. Under development.

They write: Two specific sources must be acknowledeged: (1) the "Black" type from William Caslon's A Specimen of Printing Types (1785), and (2) the "Caslon Gotisch" type by D. Stempel A.G. (1926).

    Antonio de Espinosa

    Spanish type founder based in Sevilla, who emigrated to Mexico and is thought to be the first Spanish typographer in North America. He created a large number of Gothic, roman and cursive faces. He printed mainly religious oeuvres, from about 1560 until about 1571. Cristóbal Henestrosa, who wrote Espinosa. Rescate de una tipografía novohispana (México, Designio, 2005), writes: He worked with Juan Pablos (first printer on the American continent) since 1551 and he began his independent job in 1559, with Maturino Gilberti's Grammatica Maturini and finalized with the second edition of Graduale Dominicale in 1576, the year he died. It is not completely clear that he cut typography, althought there is a contract (1550) in which he promises to cut type for Juan Pablos, but he is the second printer in all of America and the first one who preferred roman and cursive type over the gothic.

    Atelier Laia
    [Santos Bregaña]

    Spanish typefoundry, est. 2013. One of its founders, Santos Bregaña, writes: Of Croatian origin, Santos Bregaña is born by chance in the city of Pamplona in 1965 on the very day that Le Corbusier drowns in Cap Martin. After studying architecture in San Sebastian and Barcelona he launches the Laia Atelier in 1996 where he focuses on interior design, and on graphic and industrial design projects associated with the culinary culture and business. In 2008 he receives, along with co-creator Anne Ibañez Guridi, the Art Director's Club of New York Sphere Award for their body of work for the restaurant Mugaritz. He leads Tabula, a publishing house dedicated to the spread of culture and gastronomy, and is a speaker on public forums and seminars related to high cuisine. His porcelain designs and his O! Luna, Tabula, and Linneo collections have received international praise and are in many of the best restaurants and hotels in the world.

    In 2013 Atelier Iaia published the calligraphic Iturzaeta-inspired typeface Lamia, a joint effort of Santos Bregaña, Julen Cano Linazasor and Maore Sagarzazu: The Lamia font is inspired by the work of the most famous calligrapher of the Basque Country, Jose Francisco de Iturzaeta Eizaguirre (Getaria, 1788-Madrid, 1853). His writing method was compulsory in Spanish schools since 1835. His "unpolished Spanish font" tried to be more effective than the more commercial English version by avoiding embellishments and excessive rear tearing. More akin with the liberal values imported by the French, his offerings sought uniformity, speed and efficiency to ensure that those in the less-favored echelons of society had an effective communication tool. From his "General collection of characters of European Letters" published in Madrid in 1833, we have chosen the "lower case pancilla reformed" represented in one of the prints. We have tried to reinterpret it by keeping its essence but also ensuring that it is viable for potential contemporary uses which, thanks to its good readability and effectiveness in longer texts, basically means as a decorative or display font. The upper case was generated using the lower case as a reference.

    Waskonia (2013, Santos Bregaña) is inspired by Basq gravestones from the 8th century.

    Earlier work of Santos Bregaña includes the Kai family (1999, with Mikel Enparantza) at Garagefonts.

    Carlos Winkow

    Carlos Winkow is a version of his original name, Carl Winckow. He designed the brush script typeface Reporter (1938, the Wagner foundry, a brush face with many alternates for the glyphs), Gong (1945, Johannes Wagner, a chalk script face; Jaspert mentions the date 1951), Alcazar (FT Nacional, 1944, an inline 3d titling font), Electra (FT Nacional, an almost avant-garde sans family, which includes the ultra thin Estrecha Fina weight), Iberica (FT Nacional, 1942, an open shaded inclined 3d lineale), Nacional (1941, Nacional: a calligraphic roman in old medieval Spanish style with Clasico Nacional 1 and Clasico Nacional Negro weights; see Madrid RR by Red Rooster for a digital version), Cursiva Rusinal (FT Nacional: this is identical to Reporter except in the alternates). Roller (1997, Pat Hickson, ITF) is based on Iberica.

    Comments on some digital versions: Romeo (Font Bureau) takes some cues from Electra and says that it is a spectacular art deco sanserif with an unusually fine condensed series. A standard non-chalk version of Gong was done by J. Wagner in 1967, and was published as Jowa Script (Jowa Schreibschrift), which in turn provided inspiration for Iova Nova (2007, Profonts). Lucia Walter revived Winkow's 1931 text face Elzeviriano Ibarra in 2011. Winkow's Numantina (1940) was revived by Nick Curtis as Numancia NF (2011). Steve Jackaman's Casablanca URW (1997) is based on Electra.

    Daniel Rodríguez Valero

    Daniel Rodríguez Valero received his PhD in Arts in 2006 from University of Barcelona, where he also got a Postgraduate in Digital Typography. He teaches Typographic Design and Digital Typography in the Arts Faculty (University of Barcelona) since 1999, and Graphic Design in Advertising studies (University of Alicante) since 2002. He teaches Digital Typography at the máster ibérico em design, Oporto (Portugal). He has created a new system for type design called Constructor in collaboration with Marc Antoni Malagarriga I Picas, a programmer. Constructor is a glyph editor based on calligraphic curves, which he presented at TypeTech, ATypI in Brighton in 2007.

    He writes: Constructor is a new tool for type design, open source and cross-platform, based on a calligraphic heritage that provides new possibilities. It can be combined with production tools like Fontographer or FontLab, because its finality is to construct outlines extrapolating some instructions or parameters given by the user. It works with only one master and produces different letterforms that can be copied/pasted to a font editor. It will help to design quickly a complete family, so the benefits of this new system for type designers are tremendous. He claims to be inspired in part by Gerrit Noordzij's theory of type design as explained in The stroke of the pen. [Google] [More]  ⦿

Taking on the challenge set by Medialab-Prado to liberate these letters from their stone prison and release them to the world, we hosted a three day workshop in Madrid. The premise was to collaboratively design a font, using a fully libre workflow and with no pre-requisites for participation---everyone was invited to join in. We were thrilled to receive this invitation from Medialab-Prado to come to Madrid and work together in a font revival inspired by a building with a rich historical background. The reception to the call was impressive and two days later we closed it having enlisted a total of thirty participants from different backgrounds and coming from different cities in Spain.

    Fundicion Tipografica Richard Gans
    [Richard Gans]

    The Richard Gans Foundry is a defunct Spanish foundry which existed from 1888-1975. Richard Gans was the son of a medic from Karlsbad, Austria. He emigrated to Spain in 1874, and died in 1925. Until 1936 the foundry was led by Mauricio Wiesenthal, but in 1936, his children, Ricardo, Manuel and Amalia Gans Gimeno, now adults, took over. Ricardo and Manuel were assassinated during the Civil War. The foundry was used to make ammunition, and after the war, Amalia Gans and then Reinaldo Leger Tittel started anew in run-down buildings. The foundry operated roughly from 1881-1975. Throughout its existence, types were designed by a number of people from within and outside the foundry. Designers included José Ausejo Matute (d. 1998), Antonio Bilbao (who created Escorial in 1960), the son Ricardo Gans, and Carl Winkow. In the post-war era, Reinaldo Leger and Amalia Garcia Gans made typographic decisions on which types to produce, and acted as typographic directors. Richard Gans' grandson, José Antonio Gans García, is still alive today.

    Six specimen books were published with titles like Fundicion Richard Gans Muestrario Edicion V. The first and second editions, rare books indeed, were published between 1883 and 1903. Editions 3 through 6 appeared in the period 1903-1922. The 1922 edition is here in its entirety (thanks to J.R. Penela). See also here. In 1965, a small catalog was published under the name Tipos Gans. The National Library in Madrid has Muestrario de Richard Gans (Madrid, Richard Gans, 1903, 410 pages) and Catalogo provisional (Madrid, 1950).

    On the web, the most complete discussion of Richard Gans is in the PDF file Fundicion Tipografica Richard Gans Historia y Actividad 1888-1975 (2004) by Dimas García Moreno and José Ramón Penela.

    Catalog of font names.

    Fonts: Until 1925, there were basically no original types. Almost everything in the specimen books of that era is due to German foundries, principally those of Wilhelm Woellmer in Berlin and Edmund Koch in Magdeburg. Some of those typefaces in common with Koch include Grotesca Chupada Redonda, Ronda Universal. Early types in this category also include Escritura Selecta, Escritura Favorita, Escritura Luis XV, Gótico Globo (blackletter), Gótico Uncial (blackletter), Nueva Titular Adornada, Tipos de Adorno, Latina Moderna, Grotesca Ancha, Grotesca and Grotesca Chupada. Many, if not most of these, saw the light at the end of the 19th century and survived until 1965.

    It is fashionable now to revive all the faces. Nick Curtis created a few (see below), and Paul W (Intellecta Design, Brazil) did many more. Intellecta Designs revivals include Gans Tipo Adorno, Gans Lath Modern, Gans Titular Adornada, Gans Ibarra, Gans Antigua, Gans Antigua Manuscrito, Gans Fulgor, Gans Radio Lumina, Gans Carmem Adornada, Gans Animals, Gans Italiana, and Gans Titania.

    The original Gans types can be categorized as follows:

    Riccardo De Franceschi

    Italian graduate from the type design program at the University of Reading in 2010, who lives and works in Piedmont and Lombardy in Northern Italy, and publishes typefaces at Sorkin Type. His typefaces:

    • His graduation project included the design of Ginnasio: The Ginnasio family is designed to set bilingual vocabularies, namely polytonic Greek English and Latin English. These dictionaries are used in secondary schools to translate texts from classical Greece and Rome into the student's own language. A Thai font is added, intended to set bilingual vocabularies as well. Ginnasio won First Prize at Granshan 2010 for Greek types.
    • Gravitas One (2011, Sorkin Type, and Google Font Directory). He writes: Gravitas One is modeled on the "UK fat face" which is a kind of very heavy advertising type created during the industrial revolution in England. The letter forms are characterized by an attention getting and strong contrast between the very heavy vertical shapes and the thin horizontal ones. The contrast of the design means that it will be most useful when set from medium to large sizes.
    • Still at Sorkin Type, he created the wedge-serif black face Goblin One (2011): Goblin One was inspired by a hand painted sign above a pub in the town of Reading (UK). Goblin One is a somewhat wide medium contrast design with a large x-height.
    • Asset One (2011, Sorkin Type) was inspired by the engraved letters found on United States dollar bills.
    • Contrail One (2011, Sorkin Type; free at Google Font Directory), it is based on handmade sans letters seen on UK posters.
    • Wellfleet (2012, Google Web Fonts and Sorkin Type) is a versatile low-contrast slab serif text typeface with a a bouncy and upbeat feeling. It was inspired by German poster lettering.
    • Emblema One (2012, Google Web Fonts). An oblique fat trendy stencil face for posters.
    • Sonsie One (2012, Google Web Fonts). Sonsie One is a large x-height signage face.
    • Vampiro One (2012, Google Web Fonts) is a near-monoline fat angular script face .

    Yanko Tsvetkov

    Yanko Tsvetkov (b. Bulgaria) is a graphic designer in Valencia. He created the free Old Slavonic / Glagolitic style Cyrillic and Latin typeface Bulgaria Moderna V2 (2012; see also Bulgaria Moderna V2). He explains: The origins of most alphabets are often shrouded in mystery, it is almost impossible to know for sure how, by whom and when it was introduced. The Cyrillic alphabet is no exception. It carries the name of Saint Cyril, a Byzantine missionary send to Moravia by the Empreror with the task to consolidate Byzantine influence against the German clergy. His most frightening weapon was an alphabet, especially customized for the Slavic language---the Glagolitic, which he created himself. Even though The Cyrillic alphabet is named after Cyril, most scolars agree this is a sign of homage instead of acknowledgement of an authorship. The alphabet itself originated in the First Bulgarian Empire, which welcomed Cyril's students after his mission to Moravia failed. From Bulgaria, the alphabet spread to Serbia and later to other Slavic states such as Kievan Rus, the predecessor of the Russian Empire. During the ages, the alphabet got simplified and reformed several times and Russia's influence spread it as far as Mongolia.

    He also made Neoglagolitic Alpha (2010), another faux-modern version of the Glagolitic alphabet.

    Magmawave (2012) is a modular headline typeface.

    ZE fonts
    [Robert Fuster]

    Virtual type 1 fonts presented by Robert Fuster (1997-2000, Departament de Matemàtica Aplicada, Universitat Politècnica de València, 46071 València, Spain). "The `zd' fonts by Constantin Kahn (kahn@math.uni-hannover.de) are virtual T1 encoded Computer Modern fonts based on (OT1) Computer Modern, Times, and Helvetica fonts, intended for simulate `dc' fonts. (Waine Sullivan's `dm' fonts are another approach to the substitution of `dc' fonts by virtual ones.) Because `dc' fonts are now obsolete, I've adapted the Kahn's package to `ec' fonts. The resulting virtual fonts are named according to the ec fonts names, changing `ec' by `ze' (zerm1000.vf simulates ecrm1000, and so on)." [Google] [More]  ⦿
