ABOUT







Veronese

As Bill Davis explains, Veronese (1911) was Monotype's first custom font: In 1911, Monotype introduced the font Veronese at the request of the publisher J.M. Dent&Sons Ltd. Veronese was a Venetian style serif typeface drawn in the spirit of William Morris's version of Nicolas Jenson's fifteenth-century roman type known as Italian Old Style. The Veronese custom font was first used for a limited edition book of Lorenzo de Medici's poems printed by Ballantyne Press for Dent in 1912. This was the first of many custom typefaces designed by Monotype for use with its hot metal typecasting machines to address the needs of its customers.
