Coptic/Ancient Greek/Hebrew (Andron)


I'm working on a book that will include texts in Coptic, Ancient Greek, and Biblical Hebrew, as well as English, French, and German.

The only typeface I know of that includes both Coptic and Ancient Greek fonts that are harmonised with the Latin is Andron. Are there others I could look at?

Also, I don't believe Andron includes Hebrew. Can anyone suggest a (Biblical) Hebrew typeface that might successfully – either through harmony or contrast – be paired with Andron?

Thanks in advance,

    A Hebrew type that might work well with Andron is Baruch Gorkin's Venecia, which is based on Italian Hebrews of the late-15th and early-16th centuries. As for how you can set English, French, and German, I haven't the faintest idea.

    Thanks. Do you know where I can buy Venecia? Google throws up references but nothing more.

    Why not contact Baruch Gorkin directly?

    Hello Paul.
    Right, Andron does not include Hebrew yet. It is on my wishlist for a long time, though.
    I did some preliminary draft studies for Andron Hebrew a few years ago.
    It’s a matter of time and resources – as it is always is. However, if I smell increasing demand, that may promote the idea of actually doing it one day.
