Consideration was given to the typeface selection and the layout based on the nature of the quote and the character of the speaker. For example Matthew Butterick stated that ‘working with the written word is a noble and significant tradition.’ The most appropriate typeface had to be Renaissance or old style. I chose Adobe Jenson Pro, an historical revival font designed by Robert Slimbach, which captures the essence of Nicolas Jenson’s Roman Typefaces from the 15th Century.
