Probably the best serif typeface ever designed. Not showy but full of confidence, Baskerville is known as a transitional serif typeface and was originally designed in 1757 by John Baskerville (1706–1775) in Birmingham. A transitional typeface is positioned between the old-style typefaces of William Caslon, and the modern styles of Bodoni and Didot.
