Mrs. Eaves meet Mr. Eaves

Mrs. Eaves, designed by Zuzana Licko in 1996 as a Baskerville reinterpretation has finally found a companian in Mr. Eaves.

Mr Eaves was based on the proportions of Mrs Eaves, but Licko took some liberty with its design. One of the main concerns was to avoid creating a typeface that looked like it simply had its serifs cut off. And while it matches Mrs Eaves in weight, color, and armature, Mr Eaves stands as its own typeface with many unique characteristics.
