+    <p>
+      In the late 50's Kefallinos designed and published an exquisite book with
+      engraved illustrations of the ancient white funerary pottery in Attica in
+      collaboration with Varlamos, Montesanto, Damianakis. For the text of
+      Kefallinos' Δέκα λευκαί λήκυθοι (1956) the artist used a typeface which he
+      himself had designed a few years before for an unrealised edition of
+      Theocritos' Idyls. Its complex and heavily decorative design does point to
+      aesthetic codes which preoccupied his artistic expression and, although
+      impractical for contemporary text setting, it remains an original display
+      face, or it can be used as initials.
+      The book design workshop of the Fine Arts School of Athens has been recently
+      reorganised, under the direction of professor Leoni Vidali, and with her
+      collaboration George D. Matthiopoulos has redesigned digitaly this historical
+      font which is now available as GFS Theokritos.
