Proof Positive - Baskerville Font

Baskerville is a serif typeface designed in the 1750s by John Baskerville (1706–1775) in Birmingham, England, and cut into metal by punchcutter John Handy. As Baskerville’s typefaces were proprietary to him and sold to a French publisher after his death, some designs influenced by him were made by British punchcutters.
