Mrs Eaves

Mrs Eaves is a Transitional serif typeface designed by Zuzana Licko and published in 1996 through Emigre. The design was inspired by Baskerville and named after John Baskerville’s wife, Sarah Eaves. It was one of the first typefaces I learned to easily identify—the low x-height, wide proportions and generous spacing make it a distinctive face that stands out amongst other serifs. Mrs Eaves is extremely popular in the print world but unfortunately, like other Emigre typefaces, it never quite took off on the web. It’s available in two weights—normal and bold—each with matching italics as well as small caps and petite caps styles.
