Palatino never gets old

Designed by the late Hermann Zapf, Palatino is a humanist serif (like Garamond) created in 1948. Based on older, calligraphic letters, Palatino looks almost like writing done with a broad-nib pen.

While made for headlines, it has experienced great popularity with books as well. (It’s actually one of the ten most used serif typefaces.)
