Iowan Old Style
Palatino is the work of Hermann Zapf, who is a calligrapher by training. Many of his fonts reflect this influence. But the Palatino system font is a harsh representation of Zapf ’s original design. Palatino Nova is Zapf’s own reworking of Palatino that restores its original fluid subtlety. Minion and Arno are also influenced by pen lettering. Minion is a clean design, widely used for books. Arno is darker and more distinctive.
