Bembo

Bembo is the name given to a 20th-century revival of an old style serif or humanist typeface cut by Francesco Griffo around 1495.

The typeface Bembo seen today is a revival designed under the direction of Stanley Morison for the Monotype Corporation in 1929.

It is considered a good choice for expressing classic beauty or formal tradition in typographical design and is generally held to be a good book face.
