GFS Heraklit Font


GFS Heraklit is a serif typeface based on the original design by Hermann Zapf in 1953-1954. It was designed with the express aim not to be like the typical modern Greek faces, but to harmonize with Renaissance roman types such as Palatino, Garamond, Aldus etc., and consequently it was never widely used in post-WWII Greek publications. At the end of the 20th century it served as the base for the Greek glyphs of Palatino (Unicode). The original characters were digitized by George D. Matthiopoulos and the font GFS Heraklit-Regular was created by Daniel Benjamin Miller and Antonis Tsolomitis.
