Baskerville 1757

Indices : Typefaces : Baskerville 1757

Lars Bergquist (John Baskerville), 2003(?)

Baskerville 1757 is an attempt to re-create John Baskerville’s original type such as it was really meant to look – on paper, and not in some sanitized universe of ideal shapes. This means that the proportions of the text sizes have been preserved, and the tendency to pare down hairlines and to prettify serifs and other detail work has been firmly resisted. Also, this version contains only what Mr. Baskerville himself wrote: Roman, italic and small caps– no anachronistic boldface.
