We just received a handsome new book set in Lucida Math and Lucida Bright Greek fonts: “Πραγματική Ανάλυση” ["Pragmatiki Analysi" = “Real Analysis”] by Anoussis, Tsolomitis, & Felouzis. From the University of the Aegean on the sunny isle of Samos (ancient birthplace of mathematician Pythagoras, philosopher Epicurus, and astronomer Aristarchus). But this book is indisputably modern: composed with the LuaLaTeX math software derived from Donald Knuth’s popular TeX math composition system. Reminds us of our years working with Don Knuth at sunny Stanford. The book has a rare - probably unique - form of colophon, shaped like an infinity sign, an elegant construction by the mathematical authors. (“Colophon”, by the way, comes from a Greek word.) Also, take a look at the early origins of Lucida Greek, shown in an previous post here, from an article by Kris Holmes, “Designing a New Greek Type”, in the journal Fine Print, July 1987.

The elegant colophon reads:

"This book was typeset with LuaLaTeX. The fonts are Lucida Bright and Lucida Sans by Bigelow & Holmes.

It was printed in 800 copies on chamois paper 85 grams in May of 2014. The final pdf file was 2.1 Mb."
