They additionally credit Verona Italic for the address – a typeface that I had skipped to identify. Their claim that the design “doesn’t use a single design originated by the Sheffield foundry” is only true to some extent: While SB’s Verona is a copy of Munder Venezian, (Barnhart Brothers & Spindler), the italic (and the bold) were designed at Stephenson Blake, and are different from the American original. And Bologna originated at Stephenson Blake and was copied by ATF as Verona – not the other way around.
