GALATHEA is my digital interpretation of a classic font of the same name. I’ve seen it in several sources (Dan X. Solo books and Alphabets & other signs by Rothenstein and Gooding), always with this name, but not in digital.
A beautiful and graceful italic font, apparently without a matching roman, GALATHEA was named for Pygmalion’s mythical female creation. The only documentation I’ve found for the font is: Originalerzeugnis von J. G. Schelter & Giesecke, Leipzig. Because of the steep incline of the letters, a LOT of kerning is employed to make them fit together neatly. If the program you’re using doesn’t support kerning, you will get imperfect spacing.
Includes upper and lowercase, numbers, punctuation and international characters. Works well paired with a Garamond.
