Baskerville is considered a transitional font between calligraphy and modern typefaces. It was originally inspired by an even earlier font, by William Caslon, which was in turn grounded in the style of the seventeenth century Dutch. John Baskerville was a businessman who was inspired by Caslon to create a font suitable for the young United States of America. Baskerville created a font that was used by many early documents, as well as popular Bibles of the times. Ben Franklin was an admirer of Baskerville, so was Arthur Conan Doyle. In fact, there is speculation that the titular character in Doyle’s story, Hound of the Baskervilles.
