During the whole of the 18th century the old tradition of using Greek types designed to conform to the Byzantine cursive hand with many ligatures and abbreviations - as it was originated by Aldus Manutius in Venice and consolidated by Claude Garamont (Grecs du Roy) - was still much in practice, although clearly on the wane.

GFS Gazis is a typical German example of this practice as it appeared at the end of that era in the 1790's. Its name pays tribute to Anthimos Gazis (1758-1828), one of the most prolific Greek thinkers of the period, who was responsible for writing, translating and editing numerous books, including the editorship of the important Greek periodical Ερμής ο Λόγιος (Litterary Hermes) in Wien.

GFS Gazis has been digitally designed by George D. Matthiopoulos.
