Dante由Giovanni Mardersteig设计。第二次世界大战后，Mardersteig开始创作Dante，当时Officina Bodoni的印刷恢复了正式生产。他借鉴了使用Monotype Bembo和Centaur的经验设计了一款新的能够与Roman相得益彰的书籍字体及其斜体。Dante最初是由Charles Malin手工裁切的，后来在1957年由Monotype改编成机械排版。新的数字字体版本由Monotype的Ron Carpenter重新绘制，不受热式铸字技术施加的任何限制。Dante字体家族于1993年发行，分为三个字重，带有一组用于标题的大写字母。Dante是一款漂亮的书本字体，也可用于杂志、期刊等。<br><br>
Dante was designed by Giovanni Mardersteig. Mardersteig started work on Dante after the Second World War when printing at the Officina Bodoni returned to full production. He drew on his experience of using Monotype Bembo and Centaur to design a new book face with an italic which worked harmoniously with the roman. Originally hand-cut by Charles Malin, Dante was adapted for mechanical composition by Monotype in 1957. The new digital font version has been re drawn, by Monotype's Ron Carpenter, free from any restrictions imposed by hot metal technology. The Dante font family was issued in 1993 in a range of three weights with a set of titling capitals. Dante is a beautiful book face which can also be used to good effect in magazines, periodicals etc.
