After a historical and analytical study of the Hebrew script (see (R)évolution typographique), it seemed that some diﬃculties that occurred in Hebrew readability could be improved by using its cursive forms adapted to body text. It also appears that the notion of contrast in text (such as roman and italic in Latin typefaces) has not found any adequate formal answer that has become standard in Hebrew. Galim was designed with the idea of bringing a typographical answer to solve some of these issues. It is a set of two Hebraic text typefaces, one founded on the Square alphabet, the other one based on the shapes of the cursive alphabet which has been stabilized for text reading. Both types have be designed together, and are similar enough to be used aside, but different enough in their structure, shapes and rhythms to complete each other.
Galim will be available soon. Please contact me for more information.
