by Jonathan Hoefler

Hoefler TextInspired by the seventeenth century baroque types of Jean Jannon and Nicholas Kis, Hoefler Text is a contemporary Antiqua font, designed specially for Apple in order to demonstrate advanced type technologies of the Mac. Hoefler Text was designed to allow typography on its highest level and the use of automatic ligatures, the round and long s, real small capitals, old style figures and swashes.
