About Linotype Trajanus™ font family

Warren Chappell named his typeface after the Roman Emperor Trajan (Marcus Ulpius Traianus, 53 - 117 AD), who ruled during the first and second century AD. Chappell chose this name as the capital letters in his design are based on the inscriptional letters found on the base of the famous Trajan Column in Rome. Trajanus' lowercase, like all lowercase letters, are not Roman per se, but rather evolved out of the Carolingian Minuscule style, which was devleoped during the reign of the Emperor Charlemagne (c. 800). Trajanus gives texts a classic, almost calligraphic feel.
