This font is named after Teodor Heneczek, Silesian printer and publisher who started the first Polish-language printing house in Upper Silesia (XIX century, no Internet). Digitalised font Heneczek was ordered by the Municipal Public Library in Piekary Śląskie to commemorate the 200-th birthday of Mr Heneczek and the 170-th anniversary of the printing house. An extended and upgraded version of Heneczek called Heneczek Pro was designed for display purposes and text-heavy documents to (it contains individual text weights). It is produced as our Central-European interpretation of famous Bodoni. Heneczek Pro - how cool is this name?
