• Adobe Jenson Pro Specimen
    Editorial & typography
  • Adobe Jenson is an old style serif typeface drawn for Adobe Systems by type designer Robert Slimbach. 
    Its Roman styles are based on a Venetian oldstyle text face cut by Nicolas Jenson in 1470, and its italics are based on those by Ludovico Vicentino degli Arrighi. (source: Wikipedia)
    It is one of the oldest typeface of its kind;
    I tried to use it in modern and contemporary ways through different examples to show that a good typeface is timeless.
    The whole specimen is written in Adobe Jenson Pro.
