Licensing Options

You can use this font in any of the following places. Read the full EULA text for details about each license. If you have a usage in mind that's not covered by these licenses, contact us and we'll see what we can do.

Desktop: for use on a desktop workstation

For the most common uses, both personal and professional, for use in desktop applications with a font menu.

For example:

  • Install the font on your Mac OS X or Windows system
  • Use the font within desktop applications such as Microsoft Word, Mac Pages, Adobe InDesign, Adobe Photoshop, etc.
  • Create and print documents, as well as static images (.jpeg, .tiff, .png)

Desktop licenses are based on the number of users of the fonts. You can change the number of users by clicking the quantity dropdown option on Buying Choices or Cart pages.

Please be sure to review the listing foundry's Desktop license agreement as some restrictions may apply—such as use in logos/trademarks, geographic restrictions (number of locations), and products that will be sold.

Desktop licenses are cumulative. If you require a Desktop license that covers additional users, simply place a new order for the same Desktop package, for the number of additional users.

Baskerville Original Pro Desktop EULA

Webfont: for your website

Webfonts can be used on a single domain. Agencies responsible for multiple websites, for example web design agencies or hosting providers, may not share a single webfont license across multiple websites.

Every time the webpage using the webfont kit is loaded (i.e, the webfont kit CSS which holds the @font-face rule is called) the counting system counts a single pageview for each webfont within the webfont kit.

For usage in graphic images shown on the website, consider a Desktop license instead as most allow for it.

This font's webfont license is:

Annual

You get a total number of prepaid pageviews that can be used over time. This means that you will pre-pay for a number of pageviews, then you'll have to come back to order more after your site has been viewed that number of times.

For example, if you order 250,000 page views, when your webpages using the webfonts have been viewed 250,000 times, you will need to buy the webfont package again for an additional number of prepaid pageviews.

App: for embedding in mobile applications

Select this license type when you are developing an app for iOS, Android, or Windows Phone, and you will be embedding the font file in your mobile application's code.

Baskerville Original Pro App EULA

Digital Ad/Email: for use in HTML5 ads

You can use this type of license to embed fonts into digital ads, such as ads built using HTML5.

We'll supply a kit containing webfonts that can be used within digital ads, such as banner ads. This kit may be shared with third parties who are working on your behalf to produce the ad creatives, however you are wholly responsible for it.

HTML5 ads use webfonts, so why purchase a Digital Ads license rather than a Webfont license?

There are a few reasons, such as the Digital Ads EULA having terms that enable usage in digital ads and on advertising networks.

Digital advertisements also have different usage patterns compared to websites. Most websites generally have consistent pageviews month-to-month whereas advertising impressions can vary wildly month-to-month. Prices reflect this, making it much less expensive to use a Digital Ad license.

If you know the number of impressions the campaign requires, that amount can be ordered before the campaign begins. For campaigns where number impressions is unknown until the end of the campaign, you can true up at the end of each calendar month.

Baskerville Original Pro Digital Ad/Email EULA

Electronic Doc: for embedding in e-text products

You can use an Electronic Doc license to embed the font in an electronic publication such as an eBook, eMagazine, eNewspaper, or interactive PDF.

An Electronic Doc license is based on the number of publications in which the font is used. Each issue counts as a separate publication. Regional or format variations don't count as separate publications.

Updated versions of publications that are free to previous customers do not need a new license; otherwise, each new version that is released counts as a separate publication.

For font usage in graphic images shown as the ePub cover, consider a Desktop license instead as most allow for it.

About Baskerville Original Pro Font Family


Until recently the story of this typeface ended with mediocre digital versions, which did not get at the root of its inspiration. Our pursuit of this paramount body typeface of the 20th century began in Nové Hrady Castle, the place where a part of the depository of old prints of the National Museum Library is kept, in the summer of 1999. Thanks to the understanding of the librarian Petr Mašek we were allowed to study and photograph four rare volumes from Baskerville’s printing office, dating from about 1760. We selected as the most successful models for the digitization of this typeface its Roman and italics in the size of about today’s 14 points, which Baskerville used for the printing, among other things, of his folio Bible in 1763 and Vergil’s works in Latin in 1757. These were large-size, stately prints on paper smoothed out by hot copper calender rollers. When composing the pages, Baskerville emphasized the importance of the blank space, just as the effect of the majestic austerity of the setting, which became an inspiration for Neo-classical typographers. He strove to remove everything which obstructs legibility, working without ornaments and rules, neatly, and with large margins. He proceeded along these lines also when designing his new typeface. His punchcutter John Handy was given the task to make the typeface different from the then fashionable Caslon, which was a surprise for a certain part of typophiles of the period. Baskerville perhaps anticipated certain elements known from Bodoni and Didot, which is why nowadays everybody calls it a “transitory” phenomenon. A detailed evaluation of Baskerville’s heritage, however, remains a task for historians. Our analytical transcription enhances rather the artistic and visual qualities of his typeface. When digitizing the typeface, we did not have at our disposal a complete alphabet – partly because Baskerville did not solve some of the characters (some of them did not even exist at the time), partly because we were loath to go to Cambridge where the greater part of the original punches is deposited. But there was no need to do this. For inherent in every fragment of any typeface is the principle, according to which it is possible, with a little bit of natural feeling, to complete the set of characters. An analytical transcription is also to remove any potential shortcomings of the source of inspiration and must not take over mechanically all details of the design. Even creators of genius, however, make mistakes sometimes and, therefore, in spite of the fact that we officially speak about “a transcription”, what was involved in the case of all complementary designs was a fairly fundamental reworking. Our aim was not so much to be reverently faithful to the original, as to preserve the spirit of the typeface and to breathe new life into it. Baskerville is a typeface with the character of a gentleman, a typeface of sober elegance and clear design. Its nature is remote from dramatic contrasts, as we know them from the Continental typography of the Late Baroque period. A project of a typeface family which includes twenty designs cannot rely on a single pair of tired eyes; that is why we are again grateful to Otakar Karlas for his valuable advice, especially when putting the finishing touches to the typeface. It was upon his recommendation that, among other things, the anatomy of the basic (original) design was reinforced, the rhythm of the italics in text sizes was made more tranquil, the balance of the “&” sign form and the colour of the small caps were improved. The result is an absolutely ordinary and inconspicuous typeface – a worker in the service of literature. The softness of its design predetermines it for every type of fiction and poetry, while its rational construction makes it useful also for scientific publications. Having worked on Baskerville’s typeface for more than a year, when we see it now, it feels like meeting an old friend.
