Type Gallery – Linotype Venezia
Font Designer: Robert Kolben, 1997
Linotype Venezia™ is part of the TakeType Library, selected from the contestants of Linotype’s International Digital Type Design Contest of 1994 and 1997. Designed by German artist Robert Kolben, the font is based on the classic forms of Roman writing in the 1st and 2nd centuries found chiseled on countless buildings and monuments. Linotype Venezia is a timeless, elegant font particularly well-suited to headlines or as inititals in combination with other fonts, working especially well with sans serif alphabets.
