Mrs Eaves

Mrs Eaves

In the mid-1990s, there was something bothering Zuzana Licko about the digital revivals of old typefaces: “Despite the absolute freedom we now have in the construction of characters, we are still cultivating compromises in form that have their origins in the era of mechanical limitation.” And so she chose a classic typeface, carefully studying the print of and literature on John Baskerville, and created Mrs Eaves, a contemporary digital interpretation of Baskerville’s legendary typeface (see #39 in this list).


Cover of the 32-page brochure from 1996

Licko reduced the contrast, but compensated by making the lowercase a little wider in order to retain the lightness of the original model. The cleverly expanded font family is named after Sarah Eaves, who later became Baskerville’s wife.
