Example text

William Caslon’s founts were the dominant force in English typography in this period, but Baskerville considered that their effect was frequently ruined by bad printing. It seemed essential to him that a type foundry should have its own printing press. Probably unsurprisingly for someone used to analysing the quality and nature of black in the japanning trade, Baskerville was determined to produce ink that was blacker than that currently available. Once he had perfected his formula, his ink was left to stand for about three years before he used it.

A  letter from his London bookseller, Robert Dodsley, nds the writer apologizing  James Watt (–) – not the inventor of the steam engine, but he improved it and made it commercially viable. Joseph Priestley (–) carried out ground-breaking work on gases, and discovered oxygen.  Preface to Paradise Regained, . The thin strokes have become thinner, the serifs ner. 16  F. E. Pardoe, John Baskerville of Birmingham: letter founder and printer, London, , citing Edward Rowe Mores, A Dissertation upon English Typographical Founders and Foundries.

However, Baskerville’s work was collecting a growing force of detractors. ’5 The paper seemed to cause the most irritation; it was too white, too shiny. But some found his type ‘too sharp’, as well. Baskerville’s face is now described as Transitional; in contrast to Caslon’s Old Style lettering there was greater differentiation between the thick strokes and the thin strokes, and this was the root of the trouble. Franklin was valiantly and at times impishly ghting Baskerville’s corner, and we have a marvellous example of his support in a letter of .
