font family

The typeface Elli was named to honor Eleanor Garvey, Houghton Library’s famed and much-loved Curator of Printing and Graphic Arts at Harvard University. For Elli’s 1990 retirement, Bill Bentinck-Smith commissioned Jean Evans to design a “digitized calligraphic font to reproduce the hand-lettering Jean has done for Houghton invitations over the years.” Elli, the person, and the Houghton Library enjoyed private use of this typeface until Font Bureau adapted it for general use in 1993.

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.

Tag: salt

Function: Many fonts contain alternate glyph designs for a purely esthetic effect; these don't always fit into a clear category like swash or historical. As in the case of swash glyphs, there may be more than one alternate form. This feature replaces the default forms with the stylistic alternates. The user applies this feature to Industria to get the alternate form of g.

Tag: fina

Function: Replaces glyphs at the ends of words with alternate forms designed for this use. This is common in Latin connecting scripts, and required in various non-Latins like Arabic. In the typeface Poetica, the default e in the word 'type' is replaced with the e.end form.
