About this font family
In 1893, Joseph W. Phinney designed Jenson Oldstyle for the Dickinson Typefoundry (American Type Founders), which was based on Morris Golden Type. Both these types were modeled on the mid-fifteenth-century letters of the Renaissance printer Nicolas Jenson.
In 1977, Colin Brignall redrew the ATF Jenson series for Letraset, and renamed the design Italia. Italias strokes appear to be even in weight. Use for short texts and in display situations.
