Adobe Garamond Premier Pro Greek
Leonidas, G. (2005) Adobe Garamond Premier Pro Greek. University of Reading.
In 2003, through a conference presentation in Vancouver and a series of exchanges with Lemon, Leonidas convinced Adobe to substantially extend the coverage of the Greek script in forthcoming Adobe typefaces. The revised brief for Garamond was extended to include, for the first time in a digital typeface, extensive polytonic support, full archaic characters, and small capitals with optional polytonic diacritics; these features should be implemented with respect for the Greek language’s complex rules for case conversion, allowing full dictionary support regardless of the features applied. This project was the first where these issues were addressed, both from a documentation and a development point of view. Leonidas’ responsibilities lay with researching historical and current conventions, developing specifications for the appearance and behaviour of the typefaces, editing glyph outlines, and testing of development versions.
