Last night I was scanning a requested book, and I couldn't figure out why the scanning was so horrible. I've had difficult scans before, but this was by far the worst scan I've gotten. I optimized the settings at least three times, all of which resulted with different settings, and none of them did well at all. Finally when I got to the end of the book there was a note that specifically addresses the font. I've never heard of such a thing, but here's what it said ABOUT THE TYPE This book was set in Requiem, a typeface designed by the Hoefler Type Foundry. It is a modern typeface inspired by inscriptional capitals in Ludovico Vicentino degli Arrighi's 1523 writing manual, ll modo de temperare lepenne. An original lowercase, a set of figures, and an italic in the "chancery" style that Arrighi helped popularize were created to make this adaptation of a classical design into a complete font family.
