Mrs Eaves Bold Italic Addition by Zuzana Licko

Emigre is proud to announce the Bold Italic addition to the Mrs Eaves family. Like the regular Italic, the Mrs Eaves Bold Italic style includes a large collection of ligatures, ranging from the common to the fanciful.

Zuzana Licko designed Mrs Eaves in 1996, as a reinterpretation of Baskerville. Now, the Bold Italic style adds even more versatility to the Mrs Eaves family.

In her rendition of this classic typeface, Licko addressed the sharp contrast, which was highly criticized in Baskerville's time. Her reduced contrast interpretation retains an overall openness and lightness, while mixing a modern drawing approach with familiar classic details, making it a highly legible design that is reminiscent of a time past.
