Gottfried Pott designed Carolina in 1990 for Linotypes Type Before Gutenberg series, basing it on Carolingian minuscule handwriting from the reign of the Emperor Charlemagne. These lettershapes from about 800 A.D. were the models for the lowercase alphabet we use today. The simple, clean lines of Carolina make it ideal for short texts, and one-line settings in larger sizes of Carolina lend informal elegance to titles and headlines.
Clairvaux was designed for Linotype in 1990 by Herbert Maring as part of the Type Before Gutenberg series. This blackletter typeface is based on quill-drawn letters from thirteenth-century manuscripts, although the letterforms are simpler than typical blackletters. Bernard of Clairvaux was one of the eleventh-century founders of the Cistercian Order of Benedictine monks.
San Marco was designed in 1990 by Karlgeorg Hoefer for Linotype as part of the Type Before Gutenberg series. The design is based on the full and rounded Italian and Spanish blackletter forms (rotunda) of the late fifteenth century. Livelier and less formal than many other blackletters, San Marco is characterized by its rounded features, the comparatively large amount of white space, and flat baseline stroke endings. Use San Marco for display work that requires a blackletter that is simple and easy to read.
