Antykwa P贸艂tawskiego

This font was designed in the 鈥榯wenties and the 鈥榯hirties of XX century by a Polish graphic artist and a typographer Adam P贸艂tawski. It was widely used by Polish printing houses as long as metal types were in use (until ca the 鈥榮ixties).

The electronic replica of Antykwa P贸艂tawskiego was prepared by Bogus艂aw Jackowski, Janusz M. Nowacki and Piotr Strzelczyk (JNS TEAM) and released during the meeting of the Polish TeX Users Group (GUST) (Bachotek, Poland, April-May, 2000) as a preliminary version.

The main source of Antykwa P贸艂tawskiego were printouts of metal types. Janusz M. Nowacki programmed glyphs in METATYPE1 using tools prepared by Bogus艂aw Jackowski and Piotr Strzelczyk. The tools make use of METAPOST, AWK, TeX, Type 1 utilities, Ghostscript, and perl. A lot of testing and tuning was carried out in the BOP firm.

The current version of Antykwa P贸艂tawskiego is meant for bold people, primarily for testing purposes.
