Palatino

Palatino is an Old Style serif typeface designed by Hermann Zapf. It was first published through Linotype in 1948. The design drew inspiration from the serifs of the Italian Renaissance, however, the proportions are much more modern with shorter ascenders and descenders, making it more readable. Palatino has been an extremely popular font in the desktop publishing world and is one of the most commonly used book serifs.
