    About Minion Pro//
    Minion Pro is designed by Robert Slimbach. Slimbach was inspired by classical, old style typefaces of the late Renaissance, a period of elegant, beautiful, and highly readable type designs. 
    Minion Pro combines the aesthetic and functional qualities that make text type highly readable with the versatility of OpenType digital technology, yielding unprecedented flexibility and typographic control, whether for lengthy text or display settings. The full Minion Pro family contains 3 weights and 2 widths, each with optical size variants, each supporting a full range of Western languages, including Greek and Cyrillic. With its many ligatures, small caps, oldstyle figures, swashes, and other added glyphs, Minion Pro is ideal for uses ranging from limited-edition books to newsletters to packaging.

    Drawn by the inspiration whereby Minion Pro has such a wide usage, I designed the type specimen book as my experience of discovering the typeface that was once unfamiliar to me. By applying Minion Pro in different applications, I let the audience look at this typeface from many perspectives.
