Description

Jenson’s roman of 1470 was a game-changing typeface, followed in 1495 by the revolutionary Aldus/Griffo roman. Then, the French punchcutters of the first half of the sixteenth century brought the development of roman text types to its apogee, subsequently forming the basis of many of the most important roman and italic types, such as Jannon’s in the seventeenth century and Caslon’s in the eighteenth century. This book uses one of the earliest of the influential French typographic romans.
