thean­odi­dot – TheanoDi­dot fonts with sup­port

This pack­age pro­vides the TheanoDi­dot font de­signed by Alexey Kryukov, in both TrueType and Type1 for­mats, with sup­port for both tra­di­tional and mod­ern pro­ces­sors. An ar­ti­fi­cially-em­bold­ened vari­ant has been pro­vided but there are no italic vari­ants. The pack­age is named af­ter Theano, a fa­mous An­cient Greek woman philoso­pher, who was first a stu­dent of Pythago­ras, and sup­pos­edly be­came his wife.

The Di­dot fam­ily were ac­tive as de­sign­ers for about 100 years in the 18th and 19th cen­turies. They were print­ers, pub­lish­ers, type­face de­sign­ers, in­ven­tors and in­tel­lec­tu­als. Around 1800 the Di­dot fam­ily owned the most im­por­tant print shop and font foundry in France. Pierre Di­dot, the printer, pub­lished a doc­u­ment with the type­faces of his brother, Firmin Di­dot, the type­face de­signer. The strong clear forms of this al­pha­bet dis­play ob­jec­tive, ra­tio­nal char­ac­ter­is­tics and are rep­re­sen­ta­tive of the time and phi­los­o­phy of the En­light­en­ment.
