Typeface notes:

First made for the Ludlow Typesetting machine, Cloister Open Face was designed in 1929 as part of the typeface series called Nicolas Jenson. These types were modeled from the 1470 Eusebius in which Nicolas Jenson’s types were first displayed. The typeface was later revised and commercialized, and released in 1941 as Eusebius. Cloister Open Face is a display version of the Jensonian model, and as such has many desirable qualities, including good proportions, lack of idiosyncratic features, and the correct apportionment of black and white, all of which give it a refined, engraved appearance. Cloister Open Face is an elegant letterform and can be used for book and journal work, sophisticated advertisements, and other display applications that need a classical touch.
