Hermann Zapfs Palatino, designed for the Stempel foundry in 1950, is one of the most widely used typefaces in the world today. Classical Italian Renaissance letterforms blend with the crispness of line needed for twentieth-century printing processes, and Palatinos generous width aids readability at small sizes. Although Zapf originally intended it to be a display face, the graceful and highly legible Palatino is a frequent choice for setting text.
