Searching for the Jenson look

Forums: 

I am trying to find a way of achieving the same colour, evenness and strength that Jenson conveyed, for instance, here:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Jenson_1475_venice_laertius.png

I appreciate that there have been many digital typefaces inspired or informed by Jenson and I’ve tried some of them – Adobe Jenson, Arno, Legacy Serif, Centaur – but somehow all of them create a very different feel on the page.

I have been trying to put my finger on just what it is the 15th-century Jenson has that the modern typefaces don’t and just what it is that I find so attractive about the 1475 sample.

InDesign CS4 bundled fonts don't include Warnock Pro, Arno Pro, Jenson Pro (but CS3 did)?

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?

Multiscript programme for a Christmas concert

I was given the responsibility of designing the programme for my church choir's Christmas concert at the last minute, and threw one together in a single evening. So it's very basic, and I was very limited in my type choices, but I thought typophiles would appreciate a seasonally-appropriate example of multiscript typography (it's a Korean church in France). Sorry about the picture quality.


The Korean typefaces used were Munchebu Jemok Batangche (문체부 제목 바탕체; "Ministry of Culture titling serif") for the display and Nanum Myeongjo (나눔명조) for the text. The Latin uses Arno.
