History

British printer John Baskerville of Birmingham created the types that bear his name in about 1752. George Jones designed this version of Baskerville for Linotype-Hell in 1930, the International Typeface Corporation licensed it in 1982. An excellent text typeface, this Baskerville design has a delicacy and grace that come from long, elegant serifs and the subtle transfer of stroke weight from thick to very thin. The high-contrast, sparkly look of ITC New Baskerville is well-suited to longer texts and display uses.

Menu Names And Style Linking

In many Windows® applications, instead of every font appearing on the menu, fonts are grouped into style-linked sets, and only the name of the base style font for a set is shown in the menu. The italic and the bold weight fonts of the set are not shown, and but can still be accessed by selecting the base style font, and then using the italic and bold style buttons. In this family, such programs will show only the following base style font names in the menu:

The other fonts in this family must be selected by choosing a menu name and then a style option following the guide below.

Menu Name plus Style Option... selects this font
ITC New Baskerville Std [none] ITC New Baskerville Std Roman
ITC New Baskerville Std Italic ITC New Baskerville Std Italic
ITC New Baskerville Std Bold ITC New Baskerville Std Bold
ITC New Baskerville Std Bold, Italic ITC New Baskerville Std Bold Italic

On the Mac OS, although each font appears as a separate entry on the font menu, users may also select fonts by means of style links. Selecting a base style font and then using the style links (as described above for Windows) enhances cross-platform document compatibility with many applications, such as Microsoft® Word and Adobe PageMaker®, although it is unnecessary with more sophisticated Adobe applications such as recent versions of Illustrator®, Photoshop® or InDesign®.

One should not, however, select a weight which has no style-linked variant or is itself a style-linked variant, and then additionally use the bold or italic styling button. Doing so will either have no effect, or result in programmatic bolding or slanting of the base font, which will usually produce inferior screen and print results.
