»Floridana« is a digitizing of a handwriting font of Hildegard Korger. It was published in 1965 by Typoart Dresden as »Typoskript«. Hildegard Korger was very good teacher and professor at the 'Hochschule für Grafik und Buchkunst Leipzig' since 1968.
Born in 1935, she is famous for her writing on type and lettering, and some of her calligraphic productions. In »Floridana« are Latin Extended-A and Ligatures supported in OpenType.
Floridana have ligatures and contextual alternates to help with flow and readability. It can be used for invitations, greeting cards, posters, advertising, weddings, books, menus etc.
Readability is not just a matter of »beautiful« and »good« typeface. Making a printed matter readable is primarily a typographer's task, it is a matter of typographic organization, the arrangement of texts and images...

But I must explain to you how all this mistaken idea of denouncing pleasure and praising pain was born and I will give you a complete account of the system, and expound the actual teachings of the great explorer of the truth, the master builder of human happiness. No one rejects, dislikes, or avoids pleasure itself, because it is pleasure, but because those who do not know how to pursue pleasure rationally encounter consequences that are extremely painful. Nor again is there anyone who loves or pursues or desires to obtain pain of itself, because it is pain, but because occasionally circumstances occur in which toil and pain can procure him some great pleasure.
