Sabon

Sabon is an Old Style serif typeface designed by Jan Tschichold and released in 1967. The design was influenced by the types of Claude Garamond with the italic taking inspiration from Robert Granjon, a contemporary of Garamond’’s. It’s a quintessential body text serif that is popular in book design, however, it doesn’t seemed to be used much on the web.
