    • Version 2.30 January 17, 2009 © Association for Insight Meditation Garava was designed for body text in Buddhist Publications. It has a generous x-height and economical copy-fit. "Garava" is a Pali word meaning "reverence." Garava version 2.0 includes the following OpenType features: Small Capitals, Ligatures, Alternative Fractions (Nut Fractions), Superscripts, Scientific Inferiors (Subscripts), and Old Style Figures. A full range of Latin characters means it can be used for Pali, Sanskrit, Romanised Indic scripts, nearly all European languages, and Vietnamese. A full Greek and Coptic character set, and a wide range of symbols extend its usefulness to other academic fields such as maths and science. Maths and currency symbols are designed on the figure width, while other symbols, arrows, and geometric shapes are a uniform width and align with the Caps height wherever the design permits. Superscripts align with the tops of figures, while subscripts bisect the baseline. Besides regular, italic, bold, and bold italic styles, the Garava font family includes Small Capitals, Bold Small Capitals, and Heavy Typefaces. Petite Capitals, Old Style Figures, and Nut Fractions are included in the Private Use Area. These features can be applied automatically in OpenType aware applications - otherwise they can be selected from the Private Use Area using the application's character map.

    And I see some »famous« designs in your portfolio. Bauhaus, Ondine, Kabel, … In which way are these legal?

    The copyright on the designs has expired.

    See One Thousand Linotype Public Domain Fonts

    Note that copyright on the Trueytpe font files lasts for much longer.

    This is not a free license to modify copyright data in a font and replace it with your own, which is an illegal practice. You must make the fonts from scratch, and the design must be more than 25 years old.

    @Bhikkhu Pesala: ... the design must be more than 25 years old.

    ... In Germany ... Were the typefaces designed by a Dutch designer the copyright - without the need for registration and/or trademarking - will last until 50 years after the death of the designer.

    So be careful with making your own digital versions of those typefaces 'bought' by Linotype from the former Lettergieterij Amsterdam.
