Designed by Reinhard Haus in 1986
Guardi™ was designed by Professor Reinhard Haus, and was released by Linotype in 1986. Haus was inspired by the Venetian Oldstyle types of the fifteenth century, such as the one used by printer and publisher Nicolas Jenson. Guardi was named for Francesco Guardi, the great eighteenth-century painter from Venice. True to its roots, the Guardi type has the characteristic Venetian oldstyle lowercase e with angled crossbar, calligraphic terminal strokes, and gentle swells from main strokes into serifs. This is a sensitive interpretation that meets modern needs with weights from regular to black. Use Guardi to impart a mood of grace and fluidity in text composition, headlines and display graphics.

Fractions

Tag: frac

Function: Replaces figures separated by a slash with 'common' (diagonal) fractions. The user enters 3/4 in a recipe and gets the threequarters fraction.

Standard Ligatures

Tag: liga

Function: Replaces a sequence of glyphs with a single glyph which is preferred for typographic purposes. This feature covers the ligatures which the designer/manufacturer judges should be used in normal conditions. The glyph for ffl replaces the sequence of glyphs f f l.

Ordinals

Tag: ordn

Function: Replaces default alphabetic glyphs with the corresponding ordinal forms for use after figures. One exception to the follows-a-figure rule is the numero character (U+2116), which is actually a ligature substitution, but is best accessed through this feature. The user applies this feature to turn 2.o into 2.o (abbreviation for secundo).

Superscript

Tag: sups

Function: Replaces lining or oldstyle figures with superior figures (primarily for footnote indication), and replaces lowercase letters with superior letters (primarily for abbreviated French titles). The application can use this feature to automatically access the superior figures (more legible than scaled figures) for footnotes, or the user can apply it to Mssr to get the classic form.
