Type Gallery – Palatino

Font Designer: Hermann Zapf, 1986
Palatino® is the work of Hermann Zapf and became available in the late 1950s from D. Stempel AG in Frankfurt am Main. Zapf named the font after Giambattista Palatino, a master of scripts from the time of Leonardo da Vinci. Zapf optimized Palatino’s design for legibility, producing a typeface which remained legible even on the inferior paper of the post-World War II period. Palatino is an Old Face font which proves that classic forms can still be used to create new typefaces.
