I'm looking for a Jenson-esque webfont that covers both roman and cyrillic alphabets... any suggestions?
At least three versatile families that were included with CS3 are no longer bundled with CS4. That's disappointing. (I'm on a work machine that did not have CS3 installed.)
Does CS4 have substantially fewer fonts bundled than CS3?
Most of the type-designs we use nowadays have their origins in the thirties of the 20th century. But their real roots are much older. Since good examples of the earliest type are hard to get by, the Amsterdam chair for the History of the Book in cooperation with the Special Collections of the Amsterdam University has started a project that will make it possible for anyone anywhere to examine early typedesign in detail. Acces to this material is difficult: the books are kept in the Special Collections of university libraries and national libraries and most times it is forbidden to take pictures.
We have started to publish high resolution pictures of early type-specimen on: http://www.flickr.com/photos/bookhistorian/
