This is the digitised and redesigned version of the historical Greek newspaper Estia.
The original typeface was only available in printed form and was taken from newspaper sheets kept in archive. The newspapers printing method at that time was linotype.
I scanned the letters one by one, retouched them by hand firstly, then digitised them using ScanFont and at last edit them with FontLab.
This was done for my MA project in the Masters department of Vakalo School of Art and Design, Athens, Greece. My proffesor during this project was Hector Haralambous.
Please give me some feedback on the result.
