Jenson’s roman surpassed | all of its forerunners and even today, in modern recuttings, remains one | of the most popular and attractive of all typefaces. The italic used to | accompany Centaur is Arrighi, designed by another American, Frederic | Warde, and based on the chancery face used by Lodovico degli Arrighi | in 1524. | Composed by North Market Street Graphics, | Lancaster, Pennsylvania | Printed and bound by R.R. Donnelley & Sons | Harrisonburg, Virginia’. [92-94]: blank.
