1785 GLC Baskerville was published by GLC. 1785 GLC Baskerville includes 2 designs and family plan alternatives. p > This household was created/inspired from the popular Baskerville Roman and Italic typefaces developed by John Baskerville, the English font style designer. We were motivated by the original family sent out by Baskerville's spouse after his death.

The complete Baskerville collection was bought by the French editor and author Pierre-Augustin Caron de Beaumarchais who utilized it to print - in Switzerland - for the very first time the complete works of Voltaire (referred to as the "Kehl edition" from the 'Imprimerie de la société littéraire typographique'). We have actually used this edition, with copies from 1785, to rebuild these 2 authentic historic styles.

The font style faces, kerning, and spacing are scrupulously similar to the initial. This Pro font consists of characters for Western, Eastern and Central European languages (consisting of Celtic) and Turkish, with a total set of small caps, standard and "long s" ligatures in each of the 2 styles.
