decorative Greek font
In the late 50's Yannis Kefallinos (1894-1958) designed and published an exquisite book with engraved illustrations of the ancient white funerary pottery in Attica in collaboration with Varlamos, Montesanto, Damianakis.
Its complex and heavily decorative design does point to aesthetic codes which preoccupied his artistic expression and, although impractical for contemporary text setting, it remains an original display face, or it can be used as initials. The book design workshop of the Fine Arts School of Athens has been recently reorganised, under the direction of professor Leoni Vidali, and with her collaboration George D. Matthiopoulos has redesigned digitaly this historical font which is now available as GFS Theokritos.
