Manufacturer name
In 1927, Victor Julius Scholderer (1880 – 1971), on behalf of the ‘Society for the Promotion of Greek Studies’, got involved in choosing and consulting the design and production of a Greek type called ‘New Hellenic’ cut by the Lanston Monotype Corporation. He chose the revival of a round, and almost monoline type which had first appeared in 1492 in the edition of Macrobius, ascribable to the printing shop of Giovanni Rosso (Joannes Rubeus) in Venice. Aroania is a modern recast of Victor Scholderer’s ‘New Hellenic’ font, on the basis of Verdana. The font covers the Windows Glyph List, Greek Extended, various typographic extras and is available in regular and bold. The regular style of the font also covers IPA Extensions, Ancient Greek Numbers, Byzantine and Ancient Greek Musical Notation and several Open Type features (Case-Sensitive Forms, Small Capitals, Subscript, Superscript, Numerators, Denominators, Fractions, Old Style Figures, Historical Forms, Stylistic Alternates, Ligatures).
