innovator, not only in the construction of the printing press but even in the inks and papers he prepared. Among Baskerville’s most noted works are Milton’s Paradise Lost and Paradise Regained, Book of Common Prayer, and his Bible of 1763 — generally considered to be his finest achievement. As Cambridge University owned the patent to that Bible version and the Prayer Books, they stipulated that Baskerville should actually take his printing presses to Cambridge to print them. It wasn’t until the 1920s that Baskerville finally won the attention he had always merited.

look more readable and the different things you can do to text. They really were fun to do. I liked doing them but at times they got a little overwhelming. But all in all SNAPS really helped me and I know I will always go back to the things I learned while creating them.

X

THE letter X In Ancient Greek, ‘Χ’ and ‘Ψ’ were among several variants of the same letter, used originally for / kʰ/ and later, in western areas such as Arcadia, as a simplification of the digraph ‘ΧΣ’ for /ks/. In the end, more conservative eastern forms became the standard of Classical Greek, and thus ‘Χ’ (Chi) stands for /kʰ/ (later /x/). However, the Etruscans had taken over ‘Χ’ from

western Greek, and it therefore stands for /ks/ in Etruscan and Latin. The letter ‘Χ’ ~ ‘Ψ’ for / kʰ/ was a Greek addition to the alphabet, placed after the Semitic letters along with phi ‘Φ’ for / pʰ/. (The variant ‘Ψ’ later replaced the digraph ‘ΦΣ’ for /ps/; omega was a later addition.) There has been much mostly fruitless debate about the origins of these added letters.
