Under the influence of the neoclassical ideals of the late 18th century, the
famous French typecutter Firmin Didot in Paris designed a new Greek typeface
(1805) which was immediately used in the publishing programme of Adamantios
Korai, the prominent intellectual figure of the Greek diaspora and leading
scholar of the Greek Enlightenment. The typeface eventually arrived in Greece,
with the field press which came with Didota.'s grandson Ambroise Firmin Didot,
during the Greek Revolution in 1821. Since then the typeface has enjoyed an
unrivaled success as the type of choice for almost every kind of publication
until the last decades of the 20th century.
Didot's original type design, as it is documented in publications during the
first decades of the 19th century, was digitized and revived by George D.
Matthiopoulos in 2006 for a project of the Department of Literature in the
School of Philosophy at the University of Thessaloniki, and is now available
for general use.
