Dante

Designed by Giovanni Mardersteig in 1954, and now surviving in digital form as Monotype Dante. Dean Allen [Textism]: Of the widely-used book typefaces of the North American mid-20th century, among them Electra, Fairfield and Janson, Giovanni Mardersteig's Dante is, to my eye, the only one to have had a successful translation to digital from metal. It's exceptionally beautiful, with character and presence that declares itself without overpowering the words being conveyed. The interoperation of italic, roman and small caps is remarkable.
