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 badge.
Based on font usage data on Typewolf, as well as site submissions designers have been sending me lately, these are the 10 fonts that I predict will be hot in 2019. When you subscribe to my weekly type roundup newsletter, I’ll send you a free PDF with a list of my predictions.
