What is the Bookish font?

This all started with a love for Jenson.
I know there’re hundreds of variations on that theme. But, that is where I began, several years ago. How far it came, as usual as I wandered through the vagaries of font design, is not unusual. If you’ve read any of my font design books, you know my design processes are quite loose and spontaneous. More…
I wanted the general feel of a favorite old font, but softer, easier, and more comfortable. I built these on the same vertical metrics as my Librum Publishing Group. However, this family is not part of that group. I used the metrics because that shows my current taste in fonts.
This family does work with the Librum group—but to be honest, I haven’t experimented enough to come up with a good companion. I suspect I’ll need to make another companion family. I may need make a non-modulated bold version also. But, that remains to be seen. I’m pleased with this.
