+  <description>
+    <p>
+      The new art of Typography, as well as the need of the humanists to mimic the
+      ancient Greco-Roman period brought back the extensive use of the majuscule
+      letter-forms in both Latin and Greek typography. Greek books of the time were
+      printed using the contemporary Byzantine hand with which they combined capital
+      letters modelled on the Roman antiquity, i.e. with thick and thin strokes and
+      serifs. At the same time the Byzantine majuscule tradition, principally used on
+      theological editions, remainned alive until the early 19th century.
+      GFS Nicefore is a typical Byzantine sample of the 5th-7th century period.
+      It has been designed by George D. Matthiopoulos.
