Galadriel™ Schriftfamilie


Entworfen von Alan Meeks (1975)
Alan Meeks designed the typeface Galadriel in 1975. Probably named after the mystical character from J.R.R. Tolkein's Lord of the Rings, Galadriel is a decorative display face. The forms of Galadriel's letters have an antique look to them, inspired by art nouveau design. They appear tall, graceful, and condensed. Lowercase letters would distract from the quirky monumentality of Galadriel, and have not been included in this typeface. Galadriel's characteristics make it the perfect choice for cards and invitations, fantasy web sites, and esoteric jewelry.

The Galadriel type has a long history, which comprises several typographic mediums. The American Type Founders (ATF) produced the ancestor of the Galadriel typeface around 1900. 70 years later, Meeks updated this forgotten lead type classic, naming it Galadriel. As such, the typeface we know today was born. Letraset originally distributed Galadriel in its dry transfer-lettering format; Linotype is pleased to present this digital update.

The typeface bears similarities to the Behrens Schrift, designed in the early 1900s by German architect Peter Behrens, as well as to the lettering of Charles Rennie Mackintosh, the seminal Scottish architect.

Case-Sensitive Forms

Tag: case

Function: Shifts various punctuation marks up to a position that works better with all-capital sequences or sets of lining figures; also changes oldstyle figures to lining figures. By default, glyphs in a text face are designed to work with lowercase characters. Some characters should be shifted vertically to fit the higher visual center of all-capital or lining text. Also, lining figures are the same height (or close to it) as capitals, and fit much better with all-capital text. The user selects a block of text and applies this feature. The dashes, bracketing characters, guillemet quotes and the like shift up to match the capitals, and oldstyle figures change to lining figures.

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.

Discretionary Ligatures

Tag: dlig

Function: Replaces a sequence of glyphs with a single glyph which is preferred for typographic purposes. This feature covers those ligatures which may be used for special effect, at the user's preference. The glyph for ct replaces the sequence of glyphs c t, or U+322E (Kanji ligature for "Friday") replaces the sequence U+91D1 U+66DC U+65E5.
