Designed in 1754 by its namesake John Baskerville, Baskerville is most known for its crisp edges and high contrast. It is known primary for being a shining example of a transitional typeface, forming the bridge between more classic typefaces like Caslon and high-contrast, modern typefaces like Didot and Bodoni.

This type specimen seeks to display the beauty and elegance of Baskerville, providing insight into its history, characteristics, and usage.
