Antykwa Toruńska
Fonts
Description:

(meaning just "Antiqua of Torun") is a two-element typeface designed by Zygfryd Gardzielewski (1914–2001).

The font is mainly used for typesetting of small prints. Its characteristic features are the widening of vertical stems at the top and the wave-like form of some of the horizontal and diagonal lines as well as of the serifs. Antykwa Torunska was first cast in metal in 1960 in the Grafmasz typefoundry in Warsaw. It was produced in the ordinary, semibold and slanted faces in sizes from 6 to 48 dd.

Janusz began digitizing Antykwa Torunska in early 1995. The first, very poor version was based on a font catalogue. It was a very imperfect source. The next version was based on photocopies of the original design drawings made available to him by Zygfryd Gardzielewski. Version 1.0, which deserves to be called computerised in that it was precise and reused character building elements across the font, was released in 1998 and comprised (similarly as the original) of three faces: upright, bold and italic.

The current distribution was generated using the METATYPE1 tools package authored by Bogusław Jackowski, Janusz M. Nowacki and Piotr Strzelczyk. Version 2.08 contains a greatly extended character set (e.g., cyrillic, greek, most often used mathematical symbols and currency symbols, additional ligatures), as well as additional typefaces (light, regular, medium and bold in normal and condensed widths).
