Default Mrs Eaves Bold Italic (new)

Emigre has released an addition to the 12-year-old Mrs Eaves font family: Mrs Eaves Bold Italic.

It looks interesting. I expect to see it pop up on book covers and in magazine article callouts — it has a lot of personality, and looks well suited to those display purposes. Like many Emigre fonts, this one has a lot of unusual ligatures.

From Emigre:
In her rendition of this classic typeface, [Zuzana] Licko addressed the sharp contrast, which was highly criticized in Baskerville's time. Her reduced contrast interpretation retains an overall openness and lightness, while mixing a modern drawing approach with familiar classic details, making it a highly legible design that is reminiscent of a time past.
Available in OpenType, Mac Type 1, and Windows formats.
