Background

ITC Tiffany is a blend of two typefaces: Ronaldson, released in 1884 by the MacKellar Smiths & Jordan foundry, and Caxton, released in 1904 by American Type Founders.

Ronaldson was an instant success and widely copied by many foundries after its release; its exaggerated serifs are its most remarkable feature.
In 1974, Ed Benguiat combined these designs in a contemporary typeface he called Tiffany, which is useful for both short texts and display work.
