This is so beautiful! Does anybody know what font they used?
Just to add to that last question, it seems that the capital Q, L and K are different from what’s provided in the Saol typeface.
Hi Krysta, most of it is indeed Saol Display: the italics include alternate swash forms for a number of capitals (AKMNQRSTY), see the specimen provided on Schick Toikka’s website.
You have a point about the L: this glyph appears to be added from a different source, or maybe it was custom drawn. Benoit, can you shed light on this question?
Beautiful book. I’m seriously considering preordering this, but I was wondering if they included his any of his Orlando Furioso illustrations? That would be a great help.
Thanks, I just pre-ordered the English language version!
Davy, yes, there are ten plates from “Orlando Furioso”.
