Asea is an etude on the dominant typeface of Greek typography
Asea is an etude on the dominant typeface of Greek typography. Upright Greek letters were designed in 1805 by Firmin Didot (1764-1836) and cut by Walfard and Vibert. The typeface, together with a complete printing house, was donated in 1821 to the new Greek state by Didot's son, Ambroise Firmin Didot (1790-1876).
The font covers the Windows Glyph List, IPA Extensions, Greek Extended, Ancient Greek Numbers, Byzantine and Ancient Greek Musical Notation, various typographic extras and several Open Type features (Case-Sensitive Forms, Small Capitals, Subscript, Superscript, Numerators, Denominators, Fractions, Old Style Figures, Historical Forms, Stylistic Alternates, Ligatures).
It was created by George Douros.

- Asea is packaged upstream along with Anaktoria, Aroania, Avdira and Alexander as a unit or family called "TextFonts". Perhaps we should consider a name change in the future.
- fontlint finds a few errors, but most likely that is due to the program not being up to speed with Unicode 7.x and to some features of the font.
- The font covers Cyrillic by 41.41% (as reported by unicover).
There is a character repertoire preview of Asea (and the other TextFonts fonts) at the project's homepage .
