Baskerville is a transitional serif typeface designed by John Baskerville in 1757. The design was intended to improve upon the legibility of the old style typefaces of William Caslon. Baskerville has a beautiful italic ampersand which I use for the Typewolf Twitter badge.
If you are looking for an alternative to Baskerville, I recommend checking out Plantin and Miller. I think DIN would make a nice font combination with Baskerville.
