“In 1994, Tobias Frere-Jones completed Hightower for the Journal of the American Institute of Graphic Arts. For as long as he had drawn letters, he had wrestled with the problems posed by any modern rendition of the fifteenth-century Venetian roman. Dissatisfied with others’ attempts to bring Nicholas Jenson’s 1470 roman up to date, Frere-Jones prepared his version of this calligraphic roman, with his own personal italic.” — Font Bureau, 1996.
