Linotype Pisa was created by Swedish artist Lutz Baar. It is a modern text typeface based on the humanistic Old Face style. Its dynamic lines and harmonious proportions make Linotype Pisa a pleasant and legible design. Distinguishing characteristics are the elongated cross strokes of the capital A, B, E, F and P and the slanted cross stroke of the lower case e, typical of Venetian Old Face characters of the 15th century. Linotype Pisa is well suited to longer texts and headlines.
