What is the Janson® Text font?

Although designed by the Hungarian Nicholas Kis in about 1690, the model for Janson Text was mistakenly attributed to the Dutch printer Anton Janson. Kis’ original matrices were found in Germany and acquired by the Stempel foundry in 1919.
This version of Janson comes from the Stempel foundry and was designed from the original type; it was issued by Linotype in digital form in 1985.
In the 1930s, Janson Text replaced Caslon as the face of choice for fine bookmaking. Its strong design and clear stroke contrast combine to create text that is both elegant and easy to read.
