In a course on typographic history at Yale University, Ronald Arnholm
studied a book by Eusebius from 1470, set in one of Nicolas Jenson’s
typefaces***. He was so fascinated by the type that in the years that followed he used it as the basis for a font family of his own: ITC Legacy
A 16th-century Garamond font served as a template for the italics. The basic structure of the two fonts proved so sound that Arnholm also created a Legacy Sans to match.
