“Palatino is classified as old style serif and was designed by Hermann Zapf in 1949. Palatino’s classical proportions have placed it among the most universally popular of all roman typefaces. Palatino was named after the sixteenth-century Italian writing master Giambattista Palatino. The broad letters and inclined serifs of the Palatino font family evoke a Renaissance grace. In 1999, Zapf revised Palatino for Linotype and Microsoft, called Palatino Linotype. The revised family incorporated extended Latin, Greek, Cyrillic character sets.”
