During the whole of the 18th century the old tradition of using Greek
types designed to conform to the Byzantine cursive hand with many
ligatures and abbreviations - as it was originated by Aldus Manutius
in Venice and consolidated by Claude Garamont (Grecs du Roy) - was
still much in practice, although clearly on the wane. GFS Gazis is a
typical German example of this practice as it appeared at the end of
that era in the 1790's. Its name pays tribute to Anthimos Gazis
(1758-1828), one of the most prolific Greek thinkers of the period,
who was responsible for writing, translating and editing numerous
books, including the editorship of the important Greek periodical
Ερμής ο Λόγιος (Litterary Hermes) in Wien.  GFS Gazis has been
digitally designed by George D. Matthiopoulos.
