This family was created/inspired from the well-known Baskerville Roman and Italic typefaces created by John Baskerville, the English font designer. We were inspired by the original family sent by Baskerville’s wife after his death.
The full Baskerville collection was bought by the French editor and author Pierre-Augustin Caron de Beaumarchais who used it to print – in Switzerland – for the first time the complete works of Voltaire (known as the “Kehl edition” from the “Imprimerie de la société littéraire typographique”).

The font faces, kerning, and spacing are scrupulously identical to the original. This Pro font includes characters for Western, Eastern and Central European languages (including Celtic) and Turkish, with a complete set of small caps, standard and “long s” ligatures in each of the two styles.
