The Zapf Renaissance Antiqua type family was designed by Hermann Zapf for the German Scangraphic Dr. Böger GmbH in Hamburg, from 1984-1986. The typefaces were engineered for use in digital CRT phototypesetting.
Notes on some of the individual styles:1. Zapf Renaissance Antiqua is a new interpretation of the Palatino family (originally designed by Hermann Zapf for the D. Stempel AG in Frankfurt and for Linotype, from1948 onward).
2. Zapf Renaissance Antiqua Swashed Light Italic and Zapf Renaissance Antiqua Swashed Book Italic are more calligraphic italics with many extra characters, ligatures, and fleurons. These may be used in combination with the standard Zapf Renaissance Antiqua Light Italic and Zapf Renaissance Antiqua Book Italic.
3. Zapf Renaissance Antiqua has both Light and Book weights; Zapf Renaissance Antiqua Light is more optimal for display purposes, where as Zapf Renaissance Antiqua Book is optimized for small text sizes.
4. Only Zapf Renaissance Antiqua Book has a companion Small Caps font."
