Background

In designing Minion font, Robert Slimbach was inspired by the timeless beauty of the fonts of the late Renaissance. Minion was created primarily as a traditional text font but adapts well to today’s digital technology, presenting the richness of the late baroque forms within modern text formats. This clear, balanced font is suitable for almost any use.
