Francesco Griffo, 1495; Giovantonio Tagliente, 1524.
Revival by Jack Yan, 1994
JY Aetna was designed originally by Francesco Griffo in 1495, and appeared in a book by Cardinal Bembo the following year. The font in this text was re-created by JY&A in 1994, at the suggestion of computer consultant Matthew Kennedy (brother of JY&A VP Ingrid Kennedy). The original x-heights, quaint letters and other niceties have been restored. An italic complement, based on the font design by Giovantonio Tagliente, has also been developed. JY&A's 2,700 kerning pairs (up to a maximum of 2,829 in the oldstyle roman) come as standard in the text fonts.
