Palatino is the name of an old style serif typeface designed by Hermann Zapf, initially released in 1948 by the Linotype foundry. Named after 16th century Italian master of calligraphy Giambattista Palatino, Palatino is based on the humanist fonts of the Italian Renaissance, which mirror the letters formed by a broad nib pen; this gives a calligraphic grace.
Palatino was particularly intended as a design for headings, but became popular for body text, overshadowing Aldus, which Zapf had expected to be used for this role. It remains one of the most widely used (and copied) text typefaces, and has been cited as the ten most used serif typefaces.
Palatino is a creative font that is suitable enough and useful for any design project.
Apparently we had reached a great height in the atmosphere, for the sky was a dead black, and the stars had ceased to twinkle.
The spectacle before us was indeed sublime.
Apparently we had reached a great height in the atmosphere, for the sky was a dead black, and the stars had ceased to twinkle. By the same illusion which lifts the horizon of the sea to the level of the spectator on a hillside, the sable cloud beneath was dished out, and the car seemed to float in the middle of an immense dark sphere, whose upper half was strewn with silver. Looking down into the dark gulf below, I could see a ruddy light streaming through a rift in the clouds.
