Baskerville Specimen Book
A type specimen book for the typeface ‘Baskerville’. It was combined characteristics of Baskerville with the secondary text which is ‘Women’s work and the Industrial revolution’. Keywords of Baskerville are unisex as elegant and powerful, and refined because Baskerville has big contrast between vertical and horizontal lines. Baskerville’s publication and the Industrial revolution happened same transitional period in the UK. At the Industrial revolution period, women’s works were changed from household chores to labour in factories. Women power was getting bigger, and it seems relate to Baskerville.
