The Adobe Type Team is happy to announce the release of twenty-two new Adobe Web Fonts. These fonts were made available by our partner, Typekit, earlier today, and adds four new families to the Adobe Web Font collection.
Adobe Caslon, a revival designed by Carol Twombly and first released in 1990, is based on types cut by English engraver William Caslon in the early 18th century. It has been a popular choice for magazines, journals, and books, and we anticipate that this popularity will carry over to the web. We heard from many of you that Adobe Caslon was a font you wanted to use on the web and we’re happy to include all six fonts from the Adobe Caslon Pro family in this release.
Also included in this release are five fonts from the Adobe Jenson Pro family. Like Adobe Caslon, Adobe Jenson is a historical revival. Designed by Robert Slimbach of the Adobe type design team, and first released in 1996, Adobe Jenson combines the strength and beauty of two Renaissance type icons (Nicolas Jenson’s 15th century Roman types, and and Ludovico degli Arrighi’s 16th century italic types), and is an elegant typeface suited to a broad spectrum of applications.
Five fonts for Arno Pro, another family designed by Robert Slimbach, are also part of this release. While inspired by the past, Arno has a distinctly contemporary appearance.
Six fonts for Warnock Pro complete this release. Also designed by Robert Slimbach, Warnock is a classic yet contemporary composition family that performs a wide variety of typographic tasks with elegance.
We hope you start enjoying these new Adobe Web Fonts on your websites.
