Apollonia font family


Designed by Takis Katsoulidis in 1986-2010
The model for designing Apollonia was Elzevir classic of the late 19th century, which have not substantially improved in the process of transition from hot metal to photo-typesetting. These Elzevir which were the best of their era, were the result of the evolution of Greek typography from the 15th until the late 19th century. This development is obviously important for the design of the typographic letter, especially if we take into account the starting point of Greek typography and the prototype of letters from which it derived. Apollonia's family was presented with the family Katsoulidis after a study that began in 1986, as part of research programs in Universities, which along with the design lasted until 1989. The new version released in 2010 is redesigned while new symbols and characters that are supporting fully the Western and Central European Character Set are added. The new version also includes 4 types of numbering (Lining, Tabular Lining, Old Style, Tabular Old Style).

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.

Lining Figures

Tag: lnum

Function: This feature changes selected figures from oldstyle to the default lining form. The user invokes this feature in order to get lining figures, which fit better with all-capital text. Various characters designed to be used with figures may also be covered by this feature. In cases where lining figures are the default form, this feature would undo previous substitutions.

Old Style Figures

Tag: onum

Function: This feature changes selected figures from the default lining style to oldstyle form. The user invokes this feature to get oldstyle figures, which fit better into the flow of normal upper- and lowercase text. Various characters designed to be used with figures may also have oldstyle versions.

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.

Tabular Figures

Tag: tnum

Function: Replaces figure glyphs set on proportional widths with corresponding glyphs set on uniform (tabular) widths. Tabular widths will generally be the default, but this cannot be safely assumed. Of course this feature would not be present in monospaced designs. The user may apply this feature to get oldstyle figures to align vertically in a column.
