Berthold Baskerville Book®

When designing Berthold Baskerville Book, Günter Gerhard Lange analyzed and compared John Baskerville’s original type (1752–1757) and countless cuts based on the original design. Lange’s interpretation also took into account today’s printing and composing technology. Compared to Berthold Baskerville, it is slightly lighter in weight and has more contrast in the strokes. The result is that Lange’s Baskerville is balanced yet maintains the beauty of the original design. Lange also acknowledged Baskerville’s background as a handwriting teacher with the graceful cursive capitals, particularly J, K, N, T, Y and Z.
