Galathea

GALATHEA is my digital interpretation of a classic analog font of the same name, a beautiful and graceful italic font, apparently without a matching roman. The original design was published by Schelter & Giesecke of Leipzig around the turn of the 20th century. This would pair well with a Garamond.

I first digitized this back in 2000, working from a vintage catalog example and Dan X. Solo’s books. Version 1.5 has an expanded and improved character set, spacing, and kerning.
