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 April 2019

kṛṣṇa—sūrya-sama; māyā haya andhakāra
yāhāṅ kṛṣṇa, tāhāṅ nāhi māyāra adhikāra

 

Kṛṣṇa is compared to sunshine, and Māyā is compared to darkness. Wherever there is sunshine, there cannot be darkness. As soon as one takes to Kṛṣṇa consciousness, the darkness of illusion (the influence of the external energy) will immediately vanish..

(Caitanya-caritāmrta, Madhya-līlā 22.31)
