The two-tiers font included in this archive, Day Roman, is a digitally redrawn version of what has come to be historically known as the “Two Line Double Pica Roman”, a typeface designed by 16th century French punchcutter FranÁois Guyot, and used in numerous books between 1535 and 1570, most notable of which are J. Steelsius’s printing of The Bible (1541) and Frisius (1551), Gillis Coppens van Diest’s printing of Erasmus (1544), Georgius (1544), Serlio (1550) and Horatius (1552), and Rotarius’s printing of Livius Brechtius (1549). The type was also used extensively by H. Dunham, and later J. Day, in London (the name Day Roman is simply a reference to J. Day having used the type). Original matrices of Guyot’s roman type are now in the Museum Plantin-Moretus in Antwerp. From 2002, Fredrick Nader at Apostrophic Labs. Download TTFs.
