At that time, documents were written in a style called Chancery Italic. Some of the typefaces developed to mimic this style are Garamond, Goudy Old Style and Caslon.

At this stage, you can see how two things influenced type design: the local handwriting style and preference, and the sophistication of the printing process. Gradually, those two drifted apart as the materials for printing, (the presses, paper and ink), allowed for more stylised type designs to be developed.

4. Transitional Transitional typefaces are lighter in appearance than Garalde. The serifs are more horizontal, and the emphasis is vertical rather than slanted. John Baskerville designed possibly the most well—known, named after himself, in the mid 18th century.
