1499 Alde Manuce ProPublisher: GLC
1499 Alde Manuce Pro was published by GLC. 1499 Alde Manuce Pro includes 2 styles and household package options. p > This household was influenced by the gorgeous roman typeface used by Aldus Manutius in Venice (1499) to print for the very first time Hypnerotomachia Poliphili ..., the popular book credited to Francesco Colonna. Francesco Griffo was the punchcutter.

The present font style contains all of the particular latin abbreviations and other ligatures used in the original. The Italic design, sculpted by Francesco Colonna, the so called 'Aldine' style, was motivated from various documents, all printed with this very first Italic typeface. We provide the total set of ligatures (about 60) we have had the ability to find, included in the original font style. In the 2 designs, we have actually made distinctions in between I and J, V and U, to simplify a modern use. Added are the accented characters and a few others not in use in this early period of printing.

The Italic style may be used as a complement to our 1470 Jenson Latin. The font style contains all characters for West European (including Celtic), Baltic, East and Central European and Turkish language.
