ATF Antique was first released by the Barnhardth Bros. & Spindler
type foundry in 1842. It was designed for sign cutting, and saw
much use throughout the latter 19th century. Its popularity led to
its re-introduction by ATF in 1905 under the name Antique 1. It is
the precursor to the typefaces Bookman and Rockwell.

Consider using ATF Antique in headlines, callouts and captions.
Oh, and take a look at its ampersand...

Comments & Reviews of Digital Type Design Guide
"In a sea of nearly-useless type books, it [Digital Type
Design Guide] is a fine piece of work."

columnist, PC Magazine

"Anyone even remotely interested in type and design needs
this book. The CD alone is worth the cover price."

columnist & C|Net TV host

"At last! A top-notch guide to digital fonts. Having taught
a course in digital fonts management for a university ext-
ension graphic design program, I've often been asked to
recommend a book on the use and understanding of digital
fonts. Frustratingly enough, there hasn't been one -- till
now. The first third of Cavanaugh's book provides a thorough,
accurate, understandable explanation of the technical and
stylistic issues; the balance of the book deals with type in
design. The cross-platform character charts on pages 68 and
69 are, by themselves, worth the price of the book. The book
is well-written, easy to understand, and includes a ton of
Macintosh and Windows fonts on an enclosed CD-ROM."
