What is the ITC New Baskerville® font?
British printer John Baskerville of Birmingham created the types that bear his name in about 1752. George Jones designed this version of Baskerville for Linotype-Hell in 1930, the International Typeface Corporation licensed it in 1982. An excellent text typeface, this Baskerville design has a delicacy and grace that come from long, elegant serifs and the subtle transfer of stroke weight from thick to very thin.
The high-contrast, sparkly look of ITC New Baskerville is well-suited to longer texts and display uses.
