Baskerville is a typeface designed in 1757 by John Baskerville in England. He increased the contrast between thick and thin strokes, making the serifs sharper and more tapered, and shifted the axis of rounded letters to a more vertical position. The curved strokes are more circular in shape, and the characters became more regular. These changes created a greater consistency in size and form. Baskerville’s typeface was the culmination of a larger series of experiments to ‥improve legibility including paper making and ink manufacturing. The refined feeling of the typeface makes it an excellent choice to convey dignity and tradition.
