Description
Collection consists of Hermann Zapf's original drawings used to develop the Euler typeface, as well as computer printouts and proofs; correspondence between Zapf and Donald E. Knuth concerning the typeface design; and the working papers of the Digital Typography Group, which produced the final digital typeface, including correspondence, character proofs, galleys, computer programs, notebooks, logs, and research notes.
Background
The Euler Project at Stanford produced a digital typeface, consisting of over 500 mathematical characters, for the American Mathematical Society (AMS). The typeface, named after the 18th century mathematician Leonhard Euler, was designed by German type designer Hermann Zapf. The typeface was produced using the METAFONT type design language, developed by Donald E. Knuth at Stanford University, and formulated by the Digital Typography Group at Stanford University.
