Die Göttliche – a timeless typeface based on Garamond

Die Göttliche Typesheet

 

 

 

“Die Göttliche” is German for “The Divine.”

I needed a font for a book project.

None of the existing fonts with diacritics (including my own) fit the bill – for design and technical reasons.

 

So here is „my“ new typeface and font family “Die Göttliche” based on the original Garamond that stood the test of time for five centuries, and counting.

Quote for June 2019

tat te ’nukampāṁ su-samīkṣamāṇo

bhuñjāna evātma-kṛtaṁ vipākam

hṛd-vāg-vapurbhir vidadhan namas te

jīveta yo mukti-pade sa dāya-bhāk

 

My dear Lord, one who earnestly waits for You to bestow Your causeless mercy upon him, all the while patiently suffering the reactions of his past misdeeds and offering You respectful obeisances with his heart, words and body, is surely eligible for liberation, for it has become his rightful claim.

(Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam 10.14.8)
